GPIO Hammer Header - Male + Female + Installation Jig
- Full GPIO Hammer Header Kit
- Hammer Header and Installation jig included
- No soldering required!
- Use Installation jig to install hammer header
- Follow Pimonori's installation guide carefully to avoid damage to your Pi
Absolutely no soldering required! All that's needed is a few gentle taps with a hammer and bazinga! Your header is securely attached to your Pi Zero or pHAT.
If your soldering isn't quite up to scratch, or you just don't own a soldering iron yet, then these nifty hammer headers might be just the job. They come in male and female flavours, and use crafty little retaining nubbins to grip tightly into the holes on the PCB.
The installation jig kit contains two acrylic base pieces, onto which your Pi Zero or pHAT sits, two steel bolts, two nuts (use these on top of the PCB to hold it tightly to the base of the jig), an acrylic top piece onto which you hammer, and both a male and female header. Make sure you carefully read Pimoroni's guide for fitting hammer headers, and use a sturdy, stable, well-supported surface while hammering.
Please note: we can't be held responsible for any damage that you may cause to your Pi Zero, pHAT, fingers, or headers while fitting them. If you follow Pimoroni's guide carefully then you should be fine. If this worries you, then get yourself a soldering iron instead!
