Slider.

So, we have this board at work that is quite long and full of leds. Testing it was complicated because the connectors are quite small and we had to test them on both sides of the board. Doing it by hand was not slow, but tectonic-like… T_T

To solve it and speed it up, I devised this tool in wich you slide the board from side to side and make contact with pogo pins inside the connectors.

010a - Board slider tester

010b - Board slider tester

010c - Board slider tester

You know, I made it in about 30 minutes (because the hot glue had to cool down quite a bit). It’s the tool I’m most proud of, both because it works like a charm and I did it lightning fast. ^_^
