These are simple 2-position screw terminals with 2.54mm pitch pins. Rated up to 150V @ 6A, this terminal can accept 30 to 18AWG wire. The 2.54mm pitch will line up with standard 0.1" perf boards.
These CAN NOT be stacked on a standard 1/10" breadboard. You need and extra 0.4mm to 0.5mm gap between each terminal for stacking. You can make a row of these screw terminals if you skip a 1/10" hole between each connector.
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.

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.
Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.

Great for some prototyping I was taking care of. Especially useful on breadboards!
Nice pin headers... I've used a lot of them. (It's also a bit cheaper here than I've seen elsewhere.)
While the pitch is correct, the pins are not long enough to stay snapped into a breadboard.
Sorry for any inconvenience. but these are not actually supposed to be used with a solder-less breadboard. They do work great on a solder-able breadboard though.

Anyone know where I can find an Eagle part for this?
Excellent! Thanks for adding these to your inventory. One request: PLEASE add the 4 pin and 8 pin version to your inventory. 0.1" pitch terminal blocks are way overpriced at Digikey, etc.
Actually, they seem to be at least 21 cents cheaper(depending on quantity ordered). CONN TERM BLOCK 2.54MM 2POS PCB
Need the 4-pin versions of these!
Is this part in the Eagle library? Any idea what it's called?
Where are the 3-pin versions of these?
Has anyone tried plugging these into an Arduino for a simple, cheap screwshield?
I had the same problem (fitting in to breadboard). You can do it easily without twisting the pins by putting them in adjacent rows at a 45 degree angle (that is, in the next column of the next row).
I tried plugging one of these in my breadboard (probably not meant to be used with a breadboard) and it wasn't going in very well with the pins the way they are built. All I had to do to make it work was twist the pins 90° with some needle nose pliers and now this little baby plugs right into the breadboard nice and snug. I have the leads to my little piezo speaker fitted to it for some experiments as I'm learning.
These will come in very handy, as will the spring terminal version that appears under "related products." Standard pin spacing, excellent!
