Pogo pin help

Recommended Posts

The holes are plated with solder. It sounds like maybe there is just a bit too much inside that one hole. It’s pretty rare but I occasionally see it and I’m able to push the pin through with a little more force while twisting it.


You might be able to heat it up with a soldering iron to get it to reflow and redistribute a bit. But usually what I do is take something a bit larger than the hole (like a long tweezers, or a pin, or a nail) and just sort of twist it around to slightly carve out a little more room.  

If it’s just not happening, jump on the slack server and I will get you sorted out with a new kit.
