Tried of desoldering Pro Micros because you've broken off the Micro-USB port? Time to socket your Pro Micros! These Peel-A-Way sockets are very low-profile, so it doesn't very much addition height to your builds.
Update (4/3/2019): Sockets may be coming back, will find out in the next week. Price may be higher than previously.
(3/29/2019): Discontinued as previous supplier ran out, and quotes from new suppliers are quite high (like $3+ for a strip of 48).
The sockets are a bit too small for most for LED legs.
You can not use these to hotswap switches, they are too small for that.
These are sold as in the following amounts:
1 strip of 82 pins, which is good enough to socket 3 Pro Micros
Instead of using the header pins that come with the Pro Micro, solder two strips of 12 pins in the Pro Micro slot. Next, align the Pro Micro over the sockets and insert leftover diode or resistor legs through the Pro Micro pads and into the sockets firmly. Lastly, solder the legs to the Pro Micro and clip the excess length.
