This item is a pogo pin adapter for a standard .1" 2x3 DIP header, which is the standard connector for in-circuit programming of AVR microcontrollers.
Pogo pin adapters allow you to provide for programming surface-mount microcontrollers after assembly (or re-program them later) without populating the board with a connector. You can even use modified layouts with through-holes replaced with surface pads, which saves space.
SparkFun sells a very similar kit, but this one dispenses with unnecessary connectors and places the connector for the programmer out of the way so that it is easier to hold while using.
This kit (some assembly is required) consists of two (identical) PCBs, 6 pogo pins, two #4 nuts and bolts, two spacers, and a right-angle 2x3 .1" DIP header.

I design and build small, useful electronic things. I started in 2013 after leasing an electric car and deciding that I could build my own charging station. Since then, I've gone on to design lots of things to fill particular needs.
The name of my store is partly a nod to Arduino's Italian roots, since Arduino got me into microcontroller engineering, and that led to everything else. I also like the image of Geppetto, working away in his workshop making little things that come to life.
