Trick for exposing female leads from male pin headers

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I just came up with a neat trick for getting female leads from a male-populated board. My MSP-EXP430FR5739 (which was so graciously gifted to me by a member of this forum :)) came with male headers prepopulated. I don't really have much use for male headers, but I didn't want to unsolder the male pins because I'm sloppy and tend to lift traces when I do that... so I came up with this solution, involving two pin jumpers I had pulled from an old motherboard ages ago, and female headers that came packaged with the board. Check it out.




Thought this might help someone out there :)
