What would be the best way to connect to a 3x2 group of solder pads? I created my own 3x2 connector (pardon the poor soldering), but there must be a more off the shelf way? I haven't been able to find anything. Anybody have any ideas? Images belowPins to solder to

My sad attempt

    \$\begingroup\$ Well ... The 1st answer is to learn to solder. Sorry. But that's just awful ... I've seen many right-angle SMD connectors soldered to commercial boards with a very similar layout and it works just fine. \$\endgroup\$

SMT Header

Search all the likely distributors. They all have them. The vertical versions are easier to solder by hand.

Also available in female header types.
