 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

The other day my bedside clock crapped out, so naturally I decided to crack it open and look inside. Inside I saw these little connector things:



(I'm talking about the little white connectors, as well as the one that still has wires attached to it)

Now I know I have seen these before so that can't be all that uncommon... does anybody know where I might be able to find something like these for my small scale hobby projects?? I've looked across ebay with no success unfortunately. To be honest, it really doesn't need to be exactly like that. All that I am really looking for is a connector with prongs that can easily be inserted into a through-hole circuit board.

If anybody knows where I might find something like this, please let me know.

Thanks!

No, I haven't tried a hardware store. I guess I wouldn't have thought to look there. Personally I would prefer to buy online if possible, but if I have no luck elsewhere I'll give the hardware store a shot.

Also to answer your last question, I'm looking for a matching set so that it can be easily removed and reconnected.

Dipmicro sells headers like these.  You can buy just the male or female varieties for a given number of pins, or this starter bag: http://www.dipmicro.com/store/SET-HDR

Pololu sells a different version of this: http://www.pololu.com/catalog/category/70

Sparkfun sells various JST connectors: https://www.sparkfun.com/search/results?term=jst+connector&what=products

<edit>
If you are still messing around, another alternative is connector blocks, which allow you to insert a hookup wire to the spring clamp.  Pololu sells these in various sizes (you want the ones with 0.1" pitch to fit in a standard breadboard).  Adafruit and Sparkfun also sells these. http://www.pololu.com/catalog/category/117
