Make header connectors poka-yoke with sugru [Permalink]

So here's a quick tip...

suppose you have a row of header pins and a row of header sockets. There is nothing to stop you connecting them together the wrong way around.

Oh yeah? A really good use of sugru is to make these connectors a little more poka-yoke. Simply have a blob of sugru on each connector that reaches out towards the other connector. If you do this on different sides for each one then you'll get blobs that collide when you try to connect them the wrong way.

See some examples...
