For the belt, I have actually a modified version of the printrbot, in my case it works quite well, but you're right I should find a way to get the belt higher.
Holes problems noted.
Thanks for the feedback, I'll do that next week.
I made these. they work ok but there are some issues. one serious issue is that they do not allow the belt to sit high enough (closer to the bottom of the bed) thus the belt is not able to run straight. a slight change to allow the belt to run closer to the bottom of the bed would be great. also the mounting holes are just slightly too close together - i was able to force the bolt through the top on a slight angle to get it in place but on my printer the mommy part mounting holes could benefit being 0.5mm wider, even 1mm to allow for more wiggle room.
otherwise i am printing with them now. they enable the belt to be quite tight - much tighter than possible with the stock clips

If your print is not clean or the belt doesn't want
to be inserted in the belt-hole use a screw driver to enlarge the hole in the same time, it work fine.
Update: tens-T(2.5/5)-40mm are 40mm long and the belt can slide a bit better in the hole...
