These are a longer version of our standard break away headers. They are 20mm long which allows you use them socket to socket. The plastic separator can be slid up or down to accommodate your needs.
You will get a row of 40 pins. They can be broken or snipped to length.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Always have a wide selection of pins available. Never know when you'll need a little more header separation.
I use these headers in breadboards: break off the number you need, center the pins on the plastic, push the header into the breadboard, and you're ready to plug in your connectors.
I needed this to plug in two connectors without cutting them off. The only thing I was worried about is I wouldn't be able to slide the plastic on the pins half way. Well, it was easy with some needle nose pliers.
