Steps for assembly:
1 - Assemble the stabilizers. Place the stem inside of the stabilizer housing. Insert the wire into the stem, and snap into the housing. Repeat for the other side of the stabilizer.
2 - Install stabilizers. Slide the stabilizers into their respective slots and snap them into the plate.
3 - Install PCB. Put the PCB on the back of the plate. The sockets will face towards the bottom of the case. Using the two Phillips screws, mount the PCB onto the plate.
4 - Mount top case onto the bottom case. Slide the assembled top part of the case onto the bottom part. Then use the 5 T6 Torx screws to mount the case together.
5 - Install rubber feet. Peel off the 3M paper backing of the feet. Gently press the feet into their grooves on the bottom of the case. Make sure to not stretch out the feet, but only to press the feet down so that they will stick in the groove.
Thats it. The NK65 is now assembled. When putting in your switches it is VERY important to make sure that your pins are straight. If they are not straight, you can pop off a hot socket.
