Summary

Adjustable Z support for the mechanical endstop from reprapdiscount.com.
The clamp diameter is for a 10 mm stub.

It is inspired from oTTo's support http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:16458

Instructions

The supports need to be removed to leave the room for the pins soldered crossing the circuit board.

The raft can be peeled off, sometime a drill bit is needed for the hole.

BOM:

2 x M3x30 screws
2 x M3 nuts
1 x Spring (mine is 7x15 mm from paoparts.com)

I do not understand how it works. How do you adjust it? The spring pushes upwards and nothing else pushes downwards. I printed and assembled it, but I can find no way to set a height by turning the screw.

Hello Patola,
you need to put a nut on the endstop holder (hexagonal hole) then put the holder in place in the support, put a spring aligned with the holder and support hole and finally put a screw that go through the support, the spring, the holder and reach the nut.
The system should be tighten to compress the spring and have the holder mid way in the support to be able to adjust its course up and down.
I hope this help but if it is not clear enough, I will post a new picture for the assembly.
