This is very useful. I used these for the TB6612FNG motor carrier board and the XBee Explorer to attach these to a breadboard. They snap easily and don't bend or warp. Definitely a good thing to buy. :)

These are absolutely great, and have so many uses.
The pins are really sturdy so I used these to mount a R3 Breadboard shield instead of usingR3 Header pack. Personal preference, but it shows how versatile they can be.
If you are handy with a set of needlenose pliers you can also remove the pin from the housing and fashion it into a solderable jumper if needed.
Keep a stash of these kicking about. VERY handy.

Simply to snap to length and easy to solder in place.
On my arduino shield, I needed more height to clear the USB connector. I might want to consider the long version (http://proto-pic.co.uk/break-away-headers-long/) next time to ensure the shield sits above the usb connector.

These headers are fine once soldered in but, as you'd expect, aren't quite as good quality as more expensive ones.

No nonsense, does the job.

Good quality header pins at a reasonable price.
A row of 40 way straight SIL (Single in line) break to fit pin headers. With a 0.1" (2.54mm) pitch and an easy snap to length design these headers are perfect for use with custom PCB's and custom headers.
