Custom PCB & Pogo Pins Pointers

Toggle Clamp – Large Size – 201B: *Ka-thunk* Pin down that PCB with our Toggle Clamp, a sturdy and reliable way to quickly press and release with precision! A pogo-pin bed is a great way to connect and test boards without any soldering, but you have to somehow get that PCB aligned right and evenly pressed down on each pogo. After much experimenting, we settled on this toggle clamp and we use it all the time in our testing processes. Read more.
