I do not support companies forcing lawsuits based on trivial patents against other 3D printer companies.
This kit comes with two connectors: one for standard connector plates; shops like DX provide many well designed mounts for just a few bucks, much better than the original suction cup.
The other connector has a M6 hole for the vent clip I use in my Ford C-Max. Because it became too soft when heating too much, I made a hook like attachment which can stand more heat. It will still need replacement from time to time, if you live in a cold place.
Print at least two brackets and one connection bar. The clips on the connection bar may need some grinding at the bottom, mine were a bit wider at the first layers than designed.
ABS is recommended, temperatures in a car may cause creep and PLA will deform on a sunny summer day or in the hot air of the heater during winter time.
The STLs with suffix _ABS have a support plate added, use these if a standard brim added by a slicer is not enough. Can be cut away with a sharp knife.
