Dupont style connectors are the ubiquitous connectors used for making solderless breadboard jumpers as they come in both male and female contacts that mate well with 2.54mm / 0.1″ standard male and female headers as well as solderless breadboard contacts.
Besides making custom jumpers, many items that are not solderless breadboard compatible can be made compatible by soldering wires to them and adding these connectors.
One nice feature is that the same housing can mount either male or female contacts making them flexible.
Another nice feature is the housings are also very easy to get contacts in and out of unlike most housings. if you decide you want to change from individual jumpers to one that has a 3-pin housing for hooking up to a sensor for instance, you can easily pop the single housings off and pop a 3-pin housing on.
There is a plastic tab that locks the contact in place. If this tab is lifted slightly, the contact slides out. If contacts don’t want to stay in the housing, the plastic tab can usually be pressed down a bit to lock the contact in place.
We sell a crimper that can be used with these contacts, but many crimpers designed for small uninsulated contacts will work as well if you already have something in the toolbox.
