Reccomended Header for IO Pi Plus when Stacking Two Together with the Mounting Kit

I have bought the mounting kit from AB Electronics to mount two IO Pi Pluses together, however, I can not find a header which is short enough so that the second IO plus can mount to the first IO plus, using the mounting pillars. Can anyone reccomend such a header?

Hello James

The best way to break out the connections on the IO Pi Plus when they are stacked is to use a right angle 20 way IDC connector and a ribbon cable. 

Something like a 5103311-5 from AMP - TE Connectivity or similar should work and you can use the 1658623-4 connector to plug a ribbon cable to the IO Pi Plus.
