5.25 RF Shields
The 5.25" RF shields have one opening
which, it is assumed, will be used for the CD-RW. The other RF shields
are also removable. However, theyre attached by thin pieces of
metal (Figure 52).
To remove a shield, just twist, turn, and bend the RF shield until it
breaks loose. Unfortunately, sometimes, there will be sharp edges, and,
once removed, such a shield cant be replaced. So, only remove
this type of shield as you need the bay. And, always be careful of sharp
edges on a case. We wont be using any of the other 5.25" drive
bays, so well leave all 5.25" RF shields in place. If the metal
holding a removable shield is particularly strong, you might
need to cut it with a wire cutter with a small head (called a side cutter).
Be careful not to cut yourself when breaking off one of these RF shields.

Figure 52: Removable 5.25 RF shields
These 5.25 RF shields are removable by breaking them off. Use a side cutter to detach the next shield, if needed. One space is already provided for one 5.25 drive. Be careful not to push too hard to remove one of these, because when it breaks off, your hand could slip and you could get cut by the sharp edges.
