a shield cover provided to surround an outer side of the frame;
fastening parts including a first fastening part provided at the frame and a second fastening part provided at the shield cover, to correspond to the first fastening part, such that the shield cover and the frame are attachable to each other and detachable from each other,
wherein the fastening parts and the fixing part are disposed without overlapping each other,
the shield cover includes:
a shield cover upper surface, and
a shield cover lateral side, bent downward from an edge of the shield cover upper surface, having a plurality of slots and a plurality of shield cover lateral side parts respectively provided between a corresponding pair of slots among the plurality of slots,
each shield cover lateral side part includes:
