access arduino pins under shield?

Post by slide » Sat Oct 04, 2014 3:32 pm

I have the keypad shield plugged into an uno, and all works fine.
I need to plug a speaker (piezo) to D11 and ground, but the shield's header is
using those pins for support.....even though it doesn't use them electrically.
So, how do I access those pins??
The only thing I could think of was to sandwich very small grippers onto the pins before I plug
in the shield. This seems kind of kludge. There must be a better way. I'm new to this, so still learning.

Hi Dave

Consider our terminal shield: ... or-arduino
