If you need to add a panel-mount connection for USB C, but don’t have the time or tools to cut a custom oval or square hole, this USB C Jack to USB C Jack Round Panel Mount Plug is the easiest and fastest way to panel-ify your project. It’s about 30mm in diameter, so you can drill a hole in your wood, plastic or metal with a common hole-saw or bit, no special shapes or filing required. Un-screw the plastic nut, insert the plug and re-attach. Ta-da! Now you have a panel mount USB C jack.
On both the inner and outer side is a USB C connection, which is a pass through so it can be used for power, data, and either host or peripheral.
It’s designed to easily attach to a panel up to 16mm thick (or 0.625″), or as thin as a few mm. Perfect for adding a USB C port to your project enclosure! We like this plug in particular for its solid body and ‘forgiving’ plastic lip that hides the drill hole.
