Heated Bed Clips

Update 1/26/2003: I'm getting about eight hours out of these and they loosen up.
Still happy but don't expect them to hold the glass in place under lateral force from the nozzle pushing on uplifted prints.
Clips for the solidoodle 2 glass bed mod because binder clips stick out too far so the door can't be closed.
Designed for 5.4mm glass/bed thickness.
Print and use on opposing sides of the bed where it is flat and highest.
My bed was warped, high in the middle but even from left to right. So my clips went left and right middle. This means the glass is higher than the front and rear edge but clipping from the front with the binder clips was causing the back to lift nearly 3mm, and binder clips on the sides were catching on the Y axis.
The flatter ones seem better and have a smaller profile if you are printing near the edges.
I made the larger ones first and they don't fit as tight, possibly from exposure to the high heat. Anyway, it's cheap to print off a few as they wear out.
