Eugene’s fishing line header hack for Raspberry Pi Zero

Wed Apr 11, 2018 2:39 am

Eugene ‘thirtytwoteeth’ Andruszczenko (of Game Boy Zero – Handheld Edition fame) posted a neat idea to help your Raspberry Pi Zero take jumper wires without soldering. He threaded fishing line through the 40 hole header, making an interference fit for male header pins. I tried it with 0.38 mm Trilene, which worked rather well.
0.38 mm / 5.4 kg test Trilene threaded through Raspberry Pi Zero header holes holds male jumper wires snugly without soldering
