If you need to add a panel-mount connection for USB C, but don't have the time or tools to cut a custom oval or square hole, this USB C jack to USB Micro B jack Round Panel Mount Plug is the easiest and fastest way to panel-ify your project. It's about 30mm in diameter, so you can drill a hole in your wood, plastic or metal with a common hole-saw or bit, no special shapes or filing required. Un-screw the plastic nut, insert the plug and re-attach. Ta-da! Now you have a USB C socket to USB Micro B socket adapter!
On the 'outer' side is a USB C connection. On the inside is a micro B connection. So this is good for when your device doesn't need more than USB 2.0 speeds, and you want to use a flexible USB-to-micro-B cable for the inner connection but expose a USB C port. If you have a USB host device, check out this USB C to USB A host panel mount adapter.
It's designed to easily attach to a panel up to 16mm thick (or 0.625"), or as thin as a few mm. Perfect for adding a USB C port to your project enclosure! We like this plug in particular for its solid body and 'forgiving' plastic lip that hides the drill hole.
Please note - this adapter only has data/power on one side of the USB C connector (apparently the adapter would not work if we had both sides pass through). If you have any problems with the USB C adapter, try flipping one of the cables over.
