Using diodes without legs

I ordered two zener diodes but I accidentally ordered the ones without legs. Is there anyway I can still use it in my circuit? I needed to solder the legs to a couple wires so can I just solder wires as legs and use them as if they had them?


Yes, that is possible, though naturally the connection will not be as robust as a factory-applied wire termination and you’d need to be rather careful about your soldering to avoid causing damage.

Thanks I’ll be careful.
