These are 0 ohm shunt resistors with the same body style as a typical 1/4W axial leaded resistor.

KEY FEATURES OF 0 OHM RESISTORS:
0 ohm resistors are a handy way to short a location where a resistor had been on a circuit board when it is no longer needed or for use as jumpers. They basically serve the purpose of a piece of wire but can be a little handier to work with at times. They can handle up to 3A of current and 500V.
We offer this particular line of resistors specifically for breadboarding because they have easy to read color-coding on a tan (5%) background so you don’t have to keep dragging out the multimeter to figure out values.
In addition the leads are very stout with a 0.55 mm diameter constructed of tin and copper plated over steel wire, so they hold up well with repeated insertions into solderless breadboards. No more trying to use needle nose pliers to get the resistor leads to insert into the breadboard. The larger leads also grip better in the contacts.
Because the leads are strong, these resistors can also be useful when sky-wiring a project.
