poe hat sticker on 4-pin connector

Mon May 13, 2019 1:09 am

The PoE HAT 4-pin connector ships with a clear sticker over the 4-pin connector.
Should this sticker be removed before connecting the Pi or should it be left on
and the pins pushed through it?

If you're not using the PoE hat, leave it on - just extra protection.

But for the PoE hat, just pushing the pins through it could leave sticky gunk coating the pin surface which could interfere with the connection.
So remove it.
