*** UPDATED !!!!! ***
The clips are designed to allow them to slide around so they don't bind.
However, this allows the cable to slowly pull out leading to tightness. Also, it will slowly work it's way out of the clip on the replacement thermocouple amp cover.
So I added a special terminator at the end near the feeder to all you to clamp the cable.
I also added to the clamp to the thermocouple amp cover (see
Thermocouple Amp Cover With Clip V2)
Finally, I've also posted the DesignSpark Mechanical source in case you want to do your own thing.
Drop me a note if you mod this. I'd like to see how it develops.
I didn't like the coiled wrap around the Bowden tube on my UM Original so I designed these clips.
Also the temp sensor amp board connector is notorious for a poor connection and temperature misreporting due to the stress of the cable moving. So also included is a retainer clip that replaces the difficult to use strain relief molded part screwed to the top of the amp board.
Print 3 or 4 of the clips and one cover.
NOTE: the clips are NOT symmetrical. One side is slightly larger and clips to the Bowden tube.
