Strain Relief

I've struggled with appropriate wire-to-board connections over the years.

Here's one of OMSI's mainstays that I've co-opted that I'd like to share: 

all you do is

Step 1: add a hole in your printed circuit board

Step 2: route the wire through the hole

Step 3: solder the wire to the board

in this case its a 22 gauge wire, 0.1" through hole for strain relief, and a 18 gauge pin hole to solder to.

 Wire is strain releived at the board. Connector is off the board
