Stop fiddling with SD card sockets in the back of your latest gadget, and streeeeeeeeeetch out with an SD Card Extender or Micro SD Card Extender.
This simple, but effective device gives you a long flexible cable, a pseudo-card on one end, and an SD card socket on the other. Plug in the SD card half and attach the socket wherever you like. This is a great hack for length constraints with 3D printers, single-board computers, data-logging kits and more. Get to your SD card in and out and safeguard against wear and tear.
The sockets are push-push. Insert the card in to lock, and press in again to release it. There’s a wee pictogram on the socket which shows the correct orientation. We used this with a Replicator 3D printer and also a Raspberry Pi Linux computer and it was speedy and error free, but it is a hack, so be aware that high-speed and high-noise environments may end up not working.
Note: Memory cards not included.
