I am 3d printing BMW Flexible Charger Mount with a J1772/Cable Holder. If anyone would like one I can print the slide mount for Flexible Charger and Cable holder for $30 Shipped (48 states) with a choice of color. I can do other colors but I will have to order the filament. Printed on a Prusa MK3S+ and with high quality PETG filament. Will attach more pics this afternoon.

NOTICE: I didn't expect so many orders and don't have enough boxes and Allen screw for back plate. So I have some on order from Amazon that will get here Friday. I will drop off 5 orders off this Saturday 7/30/2022. Please bare with me while I get all the logistics together :D

Note: 3D Printed Parts are not like Injection Molded Parts. The surface will show extrusion rings, artifacts, blemishes and other signs of plastic extrusion. This will occur with any 3D Printed parts using the FDM method of printing as we do. Slanted and curved vertical (Z Axis) surfaces will show more extrusions, artifacts, blemishes and signs of plastic extrusion than flatter parts. This in no way deters from the parts functionality. All parts are inspected prior to shipment.

I need one, but can you show a picture of the holder with the charger? as you know the nema 10-50 adapter vcanle connects at 180 to the charger, so the lights on the charger face the wall, but that fine, I just need something to hold the charger so is does not hank from the nema socket.

Will do! I am using the 14-50 and it holds the charger just fine :D Display of charger is face the correct way so we can see it works.

does everyone have the nema 14-50 cable reversed like this:
Gas Machine Home security Security Composite material
I have noticed this as well but doesn't really interfere with it installed. Also, I updated the original post with options and pics.
