Two screws on the bottom. Although the Lightning terminal was not found on the main body, it seems that it is possible to install the lightning cable on hand by detaching this screw on the bottom side.

When opening a small paper bag, a back plate that supports a hexagonal wrench · iPhone and iPad comes out.

Quickly remove the two screws on the bottom to fit the Lightning terminal into the dock.

When turning the inserted hexagonal wrench, the screws in the inside loosen and the hole for passing the Lightning cable opened.

Pass Lightning cable through from behind ... ...

Pull out the terminal part of the Lightning cable.
