Made this shield after one of the connectors popped out and stopped the print head from reaching the axis switch. Quick fix for an annoying problem, hope you find it useful.
Tip: It may vibrate a bit when the printer is running, and make some rattle. Just add a small piece of tape on the back of the printer head/shield and the rattle will stop.
