Description: The ScrewShield extends all pins of the Arduino out to 3.5mm pitch screw terminals. It also has a lot of the utility provided by Arduino Protoshield, including: a large prototyping space of both connected and unconnected 0.1" spaced through-holes, a couple 5V and GND busses, a reset button, general use push button, and a 5mm yellow LED.
This product includes all the parts shown and comes in kit form and must be soldered together by the end user.
Note: This product is a collaboration with Tod Kurt, John Edgar Park, and Brian Jepson of WingShield Industries and a portion of each sale goes to them for product support and continued development.

I thought that I would drop in here and hopefully prevent someone from making ugly terminals like I did :o) At least on one side anyway.
The little terminals are cool. They interlock.
Pay attention to how you assemble them and they’ll nest together perfectly. Or you can stab and solder and end up fighting to keep them straight like I did on the first set :o)
I bought one to replace a fairly crowded custom shield for my proton pack. This makes it easy to route the wires to the various LEDs and other peripherals, and switch them around occasionally when needed. Since it comes as a kit, I only assembled the parts I needed.
