Screw Terminals with 5mm pitch pins. Comes in 2 or 3 positions and have the really cool feature of slide-locking together to form any size you need (4, 5, up to 20 without problems). Rated up to 300V @ 8A. Terminal can accept 26 to 14AWG wire. 5mm/197mil pin pitch will line up well with standard 0.1" perf boards but the pins are thick enough (1.0mm OD) that you may need to increase the hole diameter on some perf boards.
Note: The 3-pin terminals only connect to other 3-pin terminals. They will not connect to the 2-pin terminals.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.
Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.

Has anyone found the 5mm part in an Eagle library available from SparkFun or elsewhere?
I cannot find this part in the Fritzing library. Please advise.
Will these fit into an Arduino? Into the pin terminals, not soldering directly to the board.
You can make them fit, but without seriously bending the connections, it'll be skipping every other hole in the Arduino. Arduinos use 0.1" spacing, while these are 5mm.
In other words, it's not ideal and not really recommended.
This part is not in the SFE Eagle Library - the 3.5MM part is but not the 5MM.
Sure enough, thanks for the catch! We'll get it into the next revision.
Both Parts are in the Library. They are under "M02" and "M03"
In fritzing the M02 and M03 are 3.5mm not 5mm
