As mentioned in my previous post, I'm intending to solder some HATs directly to the Pi. However, I find the pins on the default header too short, so I need to replace them with longer ones.
I have this Stackable Header from Adafruit with Extra Long pins, but the female part of the header gives it too much height so I would like to remove it. As is apparent from the image, the male headers are somehow attached to the female header and probably can be removed. Eventually, I want to end up with something like this which, unfortunately is unavailable where I live.
Is the top part soldered into the bottom part? Is there a safe way to separate the them?
