Lead-through Breadboard (Prototype for Transparent Breadboard)

To build a circuit neatly on the breadboard, you often cut long lead wires of electronic components to the proper length. A resistor, LED and capacitor have long lead wires, for example. The time consumed to cut lead wires is not negligible, is it?

To save that time, we created the lead-through breadboard.

You would see no difference from an ordinary breadboard on the surface.


On the back, it has a plastic board instead of double stick tape.


There are holes on the back.


The holes are penetrated from the surface.


You know how to use it, don’t you? Insert a component and cut the extra lead wire protruding on the back side. Now, we are going to show it.


Stick them like this.


Cut the lead wire on the back side by using nippers. It saves the bother of you having to pull out components every time you cut lead wires.



The cross section would be like this.

Tips for use

You know, that a component with winding lead wires cannot be inserted straight so it does not pass through properly. You have to make it as straight as possible by squeezing it through your fingers, or cut the lead before inserting it as you usually do with an ordinary breadboard.


Even when using straight lead wires, it is sometimes difficult to insert more than one at a time. It would be better to insert it one by one in order.


Pass through one end first.


Then insert the other end carefully not to bend the tip. Make sure that the end you first inserted is not pulled out.


Insert both ends until they are pressed.

Now, we’ll see how much the building time can be reduced.
