I just purchased an RGB LED strip to make my first 'non arduino starter kit project'.
It has red, green and blue wires coming from the end of it, which I am trying to put in the breadboard sockets adjacent to the drain of each required MOSFET.
I am finding, however, that only the very tip of the wires are rigid and they are not 'sticking' in the breadboard sockets (if i move the wire slightly, they just come out).
Is there a well known 'hack' to make sure the wires are fastened securely in the breadboard sockets?
I'm new to electronics, so I wasn't sure if there was some sort of connector designed exactly for this - perhaps something with one female end that could clamp the flimsy wire, whilst the other end had a more rigid pin that could be secured in the breadboard?
