I have a snap-in style through-hole pins on a header. They snap into my board firmly and stay securely. Do I have to solder these connectors? Are through-hole style connectors ever rated for use without solder?
I know I could get away without soldering the connections, I am wondering if they are designed to be put into service without soldering?
For reference, I am using a 12 pin header (1-2178713-2) from TE. Here is a link to the data sheet.
