3-pin Male Header Only

PRT-08232 only has the 3-pin Male Header. The picture is confusing. Try looking at this picture => https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0jwgLkjMWzDeXpnNkZsZ21rQXc .

You will still need to order the crimp pins [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8100 ] and 3-pin female housing polarized connector [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8096 ] . Make sure that you are using crimp tool [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13193 ] for the female housing.
