Use these to stack shields on your Arduino! These are standard 6-pin, 8-pin and 10-pin 0.1" spacing female headers...with a twist! The pins are extra long which means you can use these to stack shields! The legs are 10.5mm (0.42") long, so after the PCB thickness (1.7mm/0.07") you have a height of 8.8mm (0.35"). Comes in a package of one 2x3-pin header, 2 x 8-pin headers, 2 x 6-pin headers and 1 x 10-pin header for full compatibility with shields designed for Arduino R3 & Leonardo. 

Please note, not all shields use the 10-pin connector or 2x3 connector stacking header. For shields that do not use the 10-pin header, use the 2x6 and 2x8 headers. 

Some experimentation might be necessary. Some examples:

  • You can stack on top of a Proto Shield, but not if there is a breadboard on it
  • You can stack on top of a Motor Shield, make sure you bend the electrolytic capacitors before you solder them in, so that they lay flat against the PCB
  • You can stack on top of a Wave, NFC/RFID, or GPS shield with no problems
  • You can stack on top of an Ethernet shield, but you'll need two sets of headers to clear the Ethernet jack.


Adafruit includes headers with all Adafruit's shield kits but these are an upgrade for those that want to stack!

The idea being that the grinder running for a set amount of time will deliver a certain amount of coffee each button press meaning the beans can be stored unground, keeping them fresher for longer.

    This kit of Headers is the best that I have used, it has everything that is required to transfer ALL the pins to the next board, the length is excellent for stacking, they give a little bit extra clearance for the slightly bigger components on the male side of the pins. Great value and worked perfectly on my Freescale Boards as well. (Posted on 15/02/2015)
