Looking for a GPIO Female/Female Adapter

by heathsmith on Tue Jun 25, 2013 4:56 pm

Hello, I'm looking for a part for my Raspberry Pi and I can't seem to find it anywhere.

In issue #2 of Magpi, page 16, there's an article which basically makes a female/female connector for the Raspberry Pi GPIO socket. This is the functionality I'm looking for, but I have two problems with the project. One, I have to buy things to make it (and I have no doubt that a pre-made one would be cheaper and there's a decent chance I'll mess it up) and two, it changes the pin positions. I'm looking for something similar in function to this, but simpler.

I'm looking for just a hard plastic female/female connector for the Pi GPIO socket that looks similar to this: http://www.adafruit.com/products/598 (but obviously female on both sides...I just want one part I can slide on top of the male connectors to make them female).

Does anyone know if one exists on Adafruit or anywhere else?

Thanks.

Would this work for you: http://www.adafruit.com/products/862 ?
When you void a product warranty, you give up your right to sue the manufacturer if something goes wrong and accept full responsibility for whatever happens next. And then you truly own the product.

It definitely works...not quite what I'm looking for, but it works.

Thank you.
