This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale. This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious.
Description: This base plate holds an Arduino and a self-adhesive clear breadboard and provids two screws which give you a more solid and simple connection. This plate can be used with any board that has the Arduino mounting holes which means the Arduino Uno, The Leonardo, FEZ Panda even the Electric Sheep can all be screwed down to the base plate for easy prototyping. You can even mount the board facing either way you like.
You will need to provide your own screws for holding your board.
Note: Due to a manufacturing error these holders are pretty warped but still easily usable. They might have slight imperfections and will wobble a bit on a table, but hold an Arduino and breadboard just fine. If you don’t mind a holder that’s a bit warped, cupped, or lopsided, this is for you!

I got one of these a year ago and used my SparkFun Heaterizer XL-3000 heat gun (which is great, BTW) to straighten it out. I just had to heat it (moving the heat gun around to apply heat evenly) while periodically bending it straight with my hands. Heating the bottom was more effective than heating the top. Now it sits flat on my desk with no wobble, and has held my RedBoard and a breadboard just fine ever since.
My only complaint is that the logo seems to be printed a bit thinly; the whiteness is uneven and it’s easy to scratch through in normal use.
