I made a remix of this shield to fit on a 200mm x 200mm bed


Zelda Guardian Shield+ (Remix)

Hi Adafruit! Great design!

I've spent hours printing the pieces and assembling the electronics. However I noticed that the "Hand Circle" STL file does not have the cutout for the slide switch. It only has a little circle. Can you please fix or upload the correct file?

Thank you!

Hello there,

We found the small slide switch wired to the 3V pin to be a bit "underpowering" with soo many NeoPixels. The circuit diagram has been updated with a beefier toggle switch and now wired to the BAT pin which provides more voltage. Check out the updates:


The installation should be similar, the toggle switch is "panel mounted" with a hex nut and washer.

Gotcha thanks! going through the assembly and I did not see any instructions on how to get the breadboard neopixel to be in the position of the front circle when you are attaching the top piece of the shield, how do you go about getting that breadboard neopixel to be in the exact location of the little circle?

Ah yes that was a bit of tricky alignment on that one pixel. Basically just overlay the top cover and do your best to line them up. We used a bit of mounting tack (or putty) i suppose hot glue can work too. The mounting tack is nice because you can re-adjust it unlike adhesives and glue. You can get some from local store or amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001F57ZPW/
