What is the lenght between the holes ?

I printed a couple and measured the holes to be 8mm apart center-center. So the outer 2 holes are 19mm apart. 3mm bolts thread in quite nicely.

The spring loaded locking mechanism was a bit stiff for my liking - the part I designed to mount to these meant I had to assemble before mounting and then I couldn't get to the tabs very easily, and it was very hard to push them onto the rail.

I just printed two parts today, and I can confirm the 19mm between the center of the two outer holes.
So it's mean a spacing of 9.5mm and not 8mm between hole's center...
That's why I am currently printing a v2 of my adaptation plate that will be screwed on top.
(My fault for not having divided 19 by 2, or not having start by these parts)

I haven't test the fixation to DIN rail yet, so no feedback on the spring loaded mechanism.

Derp - 19/2 = 9.5. Yup.

I ended up remixing a different DIN rail that clips in easier. I put 3 holes 19mm apart (38 between outer two). https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3422124
