GPIO jumpers: longer, better?



  • So I’m wiring up my PIR sensor via some jumper cables.
    Like these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00RMBC5I0/ref=psd_mlt_nbc_B00KOL5BCC_ri

    They work, but I have two complaints. First is, these cables are pretty short. I’d like to do something much longer. I’d like something a foot long if possible. (This also makes adding a ferrite coil easier)

    The other complaint is that they pull off rather easily. I know that’s good for development, but for a final install project how do you keep these things in securely?

    Anyone have recommendations?
