You have a Circuit Playground Express, and want to connect some wires to it for adding LEDs or sensors or speakers? You can use our nice alligator clips, but they are a little bulky. If you aren’t quite ready to solder to your Playground, try this simple but effective bolt kit.
In this kit comes:
- 6 x M3 5mm machine steel screws
- 6 x M3 zinc-plated steel hex nuts
Using them is simple! Put the screw through the large alligator pads on your board, then wrap the wire you want to attach around a few times. Then screw down the hex nut to hold the wire against the pad. It makes for a compact kit but no soldering required.
p.s. Works great with classic Circuit Playgrounds, micro:bit’s, Gemma M0 and Flora too!
