This is a upgrade to the RepRap Prusa. Becoming frustrated having to grab my pliers to level my bed, I invented this. This thing permanently holds the lock nut and also provides a tab to eliminate pliers.


When I printed the part, the opening was smaller than the nut. I solved this very carefully with a lighter. I gently heated the back of the lock nut and the plastic. I used the metal part of the lighter to push in the lock nut. The result was a solid lock nut with a convienient tab to adjust.
