These housings work with Pololu's wires with pre-crimped terminals and Pololu's crimp pins to let you quickly make custom cables that mate with various 0.1"-spaced connectors, including male and female headers and solderless breadboards. Just pick the housing for the correct number of pins, pick the colors and genders for your wires, and snap them into the housings (note: it’s not easy to get the wires back out, so plan carefully!).

You can easily make cable harnesses or assemblies that branch from one connector on one side to multiple connectors on the other; you can also cut off one pre-crimped end and solder the wires directly to components to make swapping connections easy:

The following video talks about some of Pololu's various wire and cable options and includes a short demonstration of how to use these housings:

And this customer-made video shows how to make custom cables with these crimp connector housings using pre-crimped wires and self-crimped wires made with Pololu's crimping tool.

We've seen these connectors referred to as “DuPont-style” connector housings, though Pololu have not verified that they can be used as direct substitutes for connector housings formerly made by DuPont. Pololu intend for them to be used with Pololu's wires with pre-crimped terminals or Pololu's male or female crimp pins.
