Curious if anyone has figured out a way to add locks or other security to the injection molded waterproof cases? For example, for use in human-dominated environments? Tips for other types of enclosures also welcome.

Hello all, I just recieved 63 of the new AudioMoth cases in the most recent group buy through GroupGets. Just wanted to report a few problems. The latch on the cases appears to be a weak point. On first use 2 of the 63 cases I recieved broke at the latch, and in two different places. In each case, I was doing the simple task of closing the latch, nothing too severe, and they both snapped. I am dealing with GroupGets about getting replacements, but wanted to share the info here too. Pictures attached.

This is related to the topic of customizing firmware to set different sampling rates for different time periods, but I realize I might be asking the wrong question (my original question here https://www.openacousticdevices.info/support/configuration-support/record-birds-and-bats-with-different-settings/p-1/dl-5ec80e5b6864df0017e1fda2-5d5e8035a7548400161d7c29-5?origin=member_comments_page). Instead, how about this: Setting the sampling rate to a higher frequency to capture bats (256 kHz, with the Nyquist frequency of 128 kHz) would theoretically register bats, birds and frogs (the latter 2 rarely emitting over 12 kHz or 6 kHz, respectively). If I want to sample all 3 taxa, can I do so by simply settin all recording periods to the higher sampling rate of 256 kHz, or will the quality of the lower frequency recordings be poorer than if I had set the sampling rate lower for those? Or is this manageable with sub-sampling during post-processing?
