The Great Search – Skinny Micro SD Card Holder for Raspberry Pi Cowbells #TheGreatSearch @DigiKey @Adafruit “Adafruit Industries – Makers, Hackers, Artists, Designers and Engineers!


(Video) We have a proven microSD card holder that we use for all our designs, it’s a push-pull SMT design that has lots of source variants, so it’s great for everyday use. We even covered it in a previous big search.

But now we have to go back and source it again – because for our new Raspberry Pico Cowbell add-on plans we need a much more skinner design that will fit between the SMT headers that will keep the Pico attached and we are about 1mm too wide! No problem, we looked around our parts bin to see what other products we use and liked the one on the Teensy boards, which are also quite skimpy – let’s buy something equivalent and load it into our CAD software to use it.
