    One nasty issue with these header housings. They are not the correct width. Rather than 0.2 inches wide they are 0.2250 inches. So where the male pin connectors can be placed side by side (they are 0.2" wide) the females will not fit more than 2 or 3 abreast. Since I had already arranged the circuit board for the males to be side by side, I was forced to sand each frigging female so they would fit. Not happy. Not happy at all.

    Do you guys have polarized headers to go with this?

    Who is the manufacture of this connector? Can I use Molex pins? Do you have a datasheet?

    • They are compatible with molex. I've added a drawing above that should help out.

        The female housings are also compatible with the Tyco Electronics / AMP 100 series polarized headers.
        They don't lock like they do with the 4UCON header, but there is enough friction that they fall out on there own. I had to go with the AMP's because SF doesn't sell a 3 pin right-angle polarized header :-(

    Do these connectors and crimp pins fit on standard .100 non polarized male headers, right angle and/or straight?

      Notice the description; "Pins have standard .1" spacing".
