Oh... There's a DOUBLE bonus attached to this file now:-)
This will prevent the Replicator from shutting the heaters down while going through the motions of removing the old reel and loading the new.

Now, for the bonus:
Thingiverse loves to see objects posted. Rather than post a null file, here's something you may find useful:
Those stupid little spacers that separate the fans from the cooling fins are a pain to put back into place. This may have been done before, but here's a spacer that connects the 2 center bolts, so you only have to wrestle with the outer spacers, which are far easier to install.
Open the holes up with a 3.5mm drill.
I've modified a fan deck I'm using for another project. Might as well make things real easy and get all the spacers on one platform. Makes maintenance a non-issue.
