Prepare the header strip:

Cut the strip to length if necessary. It will be easier to solder if you insert it into a breadboard - long pins down

Add the breakout board:

Place the breakout board over the pins so that the short pins poke through the breakout pads

And Solder!

Be sure to solder all pins for reliable electrical contact.

Solder one side first

(For tips on soldering, be sure to check out our Guide to Excellent Soldering).

Twist the board around and solder the other row!

You're done! Check your solder joints visually and continue onto the next steps
