Secure connection to Arduino pins

What you you guys use to connect to the pins in your final Arduino projects?
A male wire to the female Arduino pins seems pretty loose. Something more secure? Screw terminals?

You could make a circuit board with the connections on. Once connected to several pins at a time, nothing will ever shake loose

good idea! I can add screw terminals to the shield.

Sorry to jump in here, so you just have male pins on the under side of the prototyping board?

yes, just look at an image of any Arduino shield.

How do you get the pins? You can buy them as single pins, then the prototyping board holes are spaced the same as the arduino females ?

Thanks a lot.

google male header pins, 0.1" spacing. Or you can make your own with copper wires.

there are pre-made proto-shields in many falvors already out there.. with and without headers even:

heres just one:
