I found after printing the spool holder by charlespax, that the holder itself was a bit tight and whilst very secure it made it difficult for changing over filament. So I decided to alter the design just a little bit to enable the spool to turn more easily and to make it easier for putting on and removing the spool.
Attach on an upright surface using nuts and bolts. You can save on the number of nuts and bolts you use by choosing two holes diagonally opposite to each other.
I have found it easiest to put the bolts into the spool holder using plyers and then using an alenkey/hexkey to hold the bolt(s) in place whilst screwing on the nuts.
