The OnOff SHIM is the perfect way to shut down your Raspberry Pi. It adds a tiny yet very convenient power switch on a 0.8mm thick board that is designed to soldered straight onto the GPIO pins of your Pi, at your discretion, so that you can use the shim with HATs and pHATs on top.

To use it, install the software (see below), just plug your micro-USB power supply into the micro-B connector on the OnOff SHIM - then you can press the button once to switch on power and boot the Pi, press the button again to initiate a clean shutdown and completely cut the power to your Raspberry Pi.

There is a one line installer that installs the clean shutdown daemon. To install the software, open a terminal and type curl | bash to run the one-line-installer.

  • Super-small SHIM-format board
  • 0.8mm Thick PCB
