Just wanted to let you guys know that this part does not fit the black slide-blocks in an Ultimaker 2(+). They may fit, but need a bit of scaling.

Just updated the design to clip onto the shaft easier and adjusted the length as per gr's suggestions.

Seems to work well. I had to file out the hole that the rod goes through a little. It could be a tiny bit longer in the longest axis. maybe .1mm or .2mm more.
