Product 1451 LED - Misleading Claim

Misleading claim: "can be mounted in breadboard diagonally" - NOT
Pins are dual inline spaced 0.2" apart (5.08 mm). They would need to be a factor of 1.414 further apart to mount diagonally. Even then two pins would have to share the same row defeating the mounting.. The only natural mounting is in two rows separated by a third row. That means there are two independent pins and two dependent pins. The design requires four independent pins. Looking at workarounds involving socket headers glued together (3x3) and female to male jumper wires. NOTE: ledge on each pin makes connection to female end of jumper problematic.

Are you saying the picture on the product page is a fake? It sure looks genuine.
