    Hi
    I have a grid switch and I need to secure the modules to the yoke. There are three small holes which are used to (I assume) insert a tiny screw to secure them but for the life of me I don't know what screw to use, I have a number of small ones in the pack but none secure them.

    Any idea how to fix the modules in place?

    Mine is Click Grid by Scolmore

    Scolmore click has *three* different and incompatible modular accessory systems. "MiniGrid", "GridPro" and "New Media" Euro modules. Make sure you are not trying to mix components from different systems.

    Euro modules are yokeless and clip into the faceplate from the front.

    On MiniGrid the single row faceplates are yokeless while the multi-row faceplates use yokes. The modules hook into the top of the faceplate or yoke from the back and are secured by screws at the bottom. The modules overlap at the bottom and screws are shared between adjacent modules.

    On GridPro again the single row faceplates are yokeless while the multi-row faceplates use yokes. On the single row plates modules are inserted from the back and then screwed on with a pair of screws in diagonally opposite corners. On the multi-row plates the modules clip into the yoke from the front and no screws are used to attach the modules.

    I believe that these are MiniGrid and yes they appear to overlap and screw together BUT the screw goes in from the back (I thought it went from the front)
