that includes a squasher frame and end cap to hold the key in place. The slot in the squasher is offset to help the tube go around the key.

Did you make it from PLA or ABS? PLA seems more brittle, ABS more forgiving.
I appreciate it's delicate - you could beef it up a bit, but several people have made it and keep using it without problems.
This would have been great if it weren't for the ratchet stopper thing, which is very easy to break, and it did, in 2 places, within minutes of handling it. There has got to be a better way. I put some acetone on it and am waiting on the results, but I think the piece is too brittle for the acetone to hold it in one piece for long.

It was pointed out that the .stl file had two parts higher than the third one, so I've tried to realign them and centre them on the platform. New .stl uploaded that is, in all other respects, the same as the original.
I beefed up the frame a bit as some people said it was too flimsy. I had also noticed that, whilst aluminium tubes work ok, plastic ones try to unroll themselves, so I turned the end cap into a ratchet wheel and added a spring to the end of the frame. It seems ok, but only time will tell.
Use the original key, but use the tpr2 ratchet and tpr2frame to make the improved version.
