Description: We’ve been prototyping for a long time on these awesome little plastic plates but it’s time for an upgrade. This version still holds an Arduino and a self-adhesive clear breadboard but we’ve done away with the plastic clips and now provide screws which give you a more solid and simple connection. Also, because the outside dimensions of the board don’t matter anymore, this plate can be used with any board that has the Arduino mounting holes. The Arduino Uno, The Leonardo, FEZ Panda even the Electric Sheep can all be screwed down to the base plate for easy prototyping. You can even mount the board facing either way you like.
This prototyping holder includes 2 screws for mounting your favorite dev board. The self-adhesive breadboard that fits this plate can be found in the related items below.

This holds both a breadboard and arduino processor board, It is very nice looking. I have some clear holders. The black is different. The screws mate to the posts of the holder. There is no need to look for standoffs to mount the processor board,
Good way of keeping everything together and stable.
I buy one of these every time I buy an Arduino. It’s incredibly sturdy and very useful for keeping the Arduino well mounted. If you don’t care about the shape you can even buy some of the ding and dent ones for a discounted price. However, I only gave it 4 stars because it only comes with two screws to mount the Arduino instead of all four for the Arduino mounting holes. It would also be nice if it came with screws for the holes to mount the holder itself.

I wish that you can add a screwdriver on it . Anyway it is nobad.
Hi, While this doesn’t come with a screw driver. If you need a good little screw driver for your work bench we have a good one for just $1 https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9146
I had some issues with some of the posts not wanting to take a screw right away, but it holds my Red Board in place nicely using just a few that were ready-to-go. I do wish I hadn’t used the adhesive on the breadboard I picked up to go with it so I could swap them out when switching between projects, but that’s on me, not the product (just a thought for those considering whether or not to commit to the sticky)!
I made a thing that shows the temperature outside my car, so I can tell if it is below freezing. I had the Arduino and breadboard just held together by their wires and put the device on the passenger seat, but with all the moving around, (Moving to the back seat when my wife was with me, to the front seat when my dog was with me) the wires often came adrift. Now with my A&BH all is secure. I got two more as I find they are great for holding my setups steady. One can also mount them on walls etc. with the screw holes. I would not be without them now.
