TUTORIAL TUESDAY – Proto Screw Shield for Arduino

Protoscrewshield T

TUTORIAL TUESDAY – Proto Screw Shield for Arduino! The proto-screwshield is the ultimate breakout board for an Arduino. It combines a prototyping shield with a full set of 3.5mm screw terminal blocks. The protoshield part lets you build custom circuitry and then you can easily & securely connect wires and sensors to the terminal blocks. Great for panel mounts, buttons, sensors, enclosures etc.

Proto-Screwshield (Wingshield) kit! The next generation Proto-ScrewShield is a dual-purpose prototyping shield. Now only does it have a large 0.1″ grid prototyping area but it also extends the Arduino pins to sturdy, secure, and dependable screw terminal blocks. You even get a few bonus terminals for extra GND and four ‘free’ terminals for whatever connections you wish!

The stack-able wing design allows you slip this under any shield and still get easy access to the “analog” & “digital” ports of the Arduino. The ScrewShield can be stacked above or below pretty much every other shield.

  • 1 large high-quality US-made PCB, specifically chosen for it’s excellent resistance to lots of soldering and desoldering (essential for prototyping boards)
  • Plenty of prototyping space, with power/ground rails
  • Diffused green power LED, extra diffused red LED for user choice (although we suggest to connect it to pin 13)
  • Reset button
  • 2 sets of 6-pin stacky female header pins
  • 2 sets of 8-pin stacky female header pins
  • Lots of 3.5mm terminal blocks to fill 36 breakouts on the board

Comes as a kit of all through-hole parts. You’ll need to assemble the kit using a soldering iron, diagonal cutters and solder but its an easy kit and should take less than half an hour.

  1. Great idea – screw terminals are a godsend for clumsy buggers like me. Kind of kicking myself for getting the original ScrewShield and ProtoShield earlier, but I should be able to find separate uses for them.

  2. BTW, the soldering page on the how-to has the wrong title. I’d fix it myself – I know the tutorials are supposed to be a Wiki – but I’ve never found the editing controls.

  3. Came for the resistor.

  4. I like this design better than the two separate pieces of the old Wingshield. I had some issues with the fragility of that one, and the pins getting easily bent.
