long headers for BBB?

I want to attach a BBB to another larger board without cutting a hole in the board for the ethernet module as the capes do.
Anyone know of a long header setup that will achieve this?

A standard header with 0.1" high black plastic piece and really long pins is not good enough since there is nothing to prevent the user pushing the board down until the ethernet module hits the board.

What I am looking for is a male header with perhaps 1/4" high plastic piece or some combination of Male.femaie parts to get the spacing.

The LCD capes seem to use such a part but search on the part number in the BOM comes up empty.

Any ideas how to do this?


Check out Samtec.

They have all kinds of lengths and spacings in 0.1 inch spaced connector systems.
