Yes, it has no holes:(

It's really intended to be a part of a larger design, allowing you to determine how best to fasten everything together. I've just completed a design wherein M2.5 nuts sit in traps where the square standoffs are located and M2.5 x 16mm screws pass up through the shield and LCD into the nuts. The whole thing then sits in a case...
