Polarized connectors and headers for your perf board/PCB projects. Use these connectors for power connections or any sensor/general connection to prevent users from connecting the peripheral incorrectly or reversed.
This is for the male header. Be sure to order the housing and crimp pins!
Pins have standard 0.1" spacing.

PRT-08231 only has the 4-pin Male Header. The picture is confusing. Try looking at this picture => [ https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0jwgLkjMWzDWVpRa1g0UUIzT1k ].
You will still need to order the crimp pins [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8100 ] and 4-pin female housing polarized connector [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8097 ] . Make sure that you are using crimp tool [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13193 ] for the female housing.
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: Rookie - The number of pins increases, and you will have to determine polarity of components and some of the components might be a bit trickier or close together. You might need solder wick or flux.

pic not satisfactory way not what is thought it would be one wasted order ! one !
so is there a way to order one size up and female ? like the connector you should order for the grbl shield their shipping to EU is overpriced .
Is there are right-angle version of this? I couldn't find one.
Found one with 6 pins. I guess I can cut it to 4 pins if I have to.
What is the pin diameter?
I'm working on a pcb.
