attaching jumpers

(apoligies for stupidity upfront) Attaching jumper leads to holes in a sheild???

Do you have a picture of your shield?

What type of jumper you would like to attach? a male or a female ?

If it's male then you'll have to solder female headers into your shield holes and vice versa.

No need for this.

What do you mean?
Soldering wires in place on a PCB.
Making/buying Dupont jumper wires to plug into female headers?
