    Can you slide the plastic on these like PRT-10158, to make one side longer for wire wrapping?

    Seems like a bargain if you need bulk. Only 2 mm shorter than PRT-10158, and you need to manually shift the plastic along the pins. Or is there some other difference that I am missing?

      Very useful for my never used "extension" servo cable product 8738

Awesome and easy to cut with wire cutters/dykes

When using wire cutters I was able to easily cut the amount off that I needed and without any loss. The pins can be moved back and forth with some effort, (they won't just fall out or move easily on their own), and the length is very good for securely putting into a breadboard and having enough to also secure a jumper cable or other female connector on top.
