Headers to interface with U3 etc?

I'd like to start making some daughter boards for specialty applications that can plug directly into the 4-position screw headers you have on the U3, U6, UE9, T7 etc akin to the LJTicks. Unfortunatly I can't use the LJTick-Proto, so I'll have to create my own PCBs, so I'll need to get some headers.

Correct me if I'm wrong: It looks like I'd need 0.2" (5.08mm) pitch, 4+ position, square pin right angle header. I'm curious, who manufactures the headers you're using with the LJTicks: TE, Molex, Wago, GradConn etc? I'd greatly help me narrow my search. Of course I could use the commonly available 0.1" pitch headers and just cut away every other position, but that won't look very professional.

Any guidance you can provide will be greatly appreciated!

The part we use is Samtec FWS

The part we use is Samtec FWS-04-02-T-S-RA.  Never seen any other source for that part.
