  • This happened to me too. Got it on the second attempt by using parchment paper. I cut a piece of parchment paper large enough to cover the pins on the connector with a little extra to grab after soldering. Next I put the parchment paper on a piece of foam and then punched the pins on the connector through the paper. Now with the paper on the pins I put the connector on my board so the paper was between the board and the connector and soldered it in place. The parchment paper prevented the solder from running into the connector. After I finished soldering I gently pulled the parchment paper cutting it on the pins to remove it.

No public wish lists :(
