I used 3 or 4 designs based on whpthomas and other made by me but I had problems due to deformations of the top part that goes from the spring to the turning point caused by prolongated hot and pressure made agains the extruder.
This design works very well for me and as there is not any long PLA part that suffers the pressure of the spring there is no deformation. The max pressure point is into the groove where the spring lies but as it is into big-solid PLA part the deformation is very difficult.

Cut one bended part of the clothespin to fit it in the extruder back piece and bend the other leg a little nearer to spring to adjust the turn radio (in my case 2-3 millimeters are enough).
Put the smallest piece into the bended leg of spring and insert the bearing then put the st into the extruder rear part.
To mount the front part you only have to rotate 90 degree, push against the rear part of the extruder and rotate he front until all pieces are aligned. Then mount into the motor.
