Feedback from the adventurous folks that have attempted my GT2 belt upgrades for the Printrbot Simple shows that the belt ends are not the most friendly critters. I too have struggled getting the belt to wedge in correctly at times, and don't care for cutting the belt every time I made an upgrade. Therefore, I put together this little wedge that will lock the belt without the need to fold or cut. Hopefully this will help make belt installs easier, and allow extra belt length to be kept for future upgrades.
Simply interlace the belt teeth with the notches of the wedge, and insert into the V-slot of the belt tension blocks or belt ends.
2014-03-25: Added the first revision of the part "GT2BeltWedgeNo1.stl" which is shown in the pictures. I felt this one was a little too flimsy, so I beefed it up to the "GT2BetlWedge.stl"
