# Is there such thing as a 'capacitor socket'?

Or will I have to make one?

Something like a 2kV mount for a cap like this (but obviously higher voltage);

So you can switch a bunch of different ones in and out, if not, I might have to design one.

• When ever I needed to do something like this, I just chop up a machine-tooled DIP socket. It's a good way to get little sockets like that cheaply. – Connor Wolf Mar 10 '15 at 3:06

You can use socket pins, one for each pin of the device. These are also called pin socket connectors.
