Customer Comments

  • What’s the maximum recommended material thickness this can bolt into?

  • The worst quality I have ever seen from SFE. It barely fits through a 1/16th inch panel, and the nut doesn’t thread properly (you can over-tighten it to the point that it slips, with just your bare fingers). I am extremely disappointed, and strongly recommend against buying this.

  • TS note: Measured threaded boss length is 3.16mm.

  • Yeah, these are not great components. As below, the screws don’t thread cleanly making for a sloppy fit. That said, they’re ridiculously cheap, so I’m not sure I should have expected better.

  • I would not recommend deeper than 2mm material thickness for these.

  • I am removing my critical comment on this part as my problem was probably user error.

  • Thanks MatthewR, I was about to get a few – for picaxe (LordFawful) Guess I’ll go with http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8032

  • this would word for a Picaxe programming port, right?

Unreliable connection

I used these for an audio project, but one channel routinely loses contact with the jack, and I have to play with it to get both channels back. These could be okay for some applications, but they’re too unreliable for me.
