J1772 connector hanger with hood and cable mount hood.
Based on erroneus's design but with thicker support structure and no inner connection ports. 30 degree hanger. Also reduced the overhang of the final lip to only be 45 degrees off base. Not over 45 degrees.
Printed it. It's working great. I might bevel out the inside to make the plug slide in more fluidly. I'll probably try this with a dremel first. This is not a tight fit, but that's okay, the push button latch does the job of holding plug in place.
The lip is working to hold cable on. I think it might work a bit better if I reduced the downward angle leading to the lip on the hood. The cable hasn't fallen yet, but it feels like in heavy winds it might. There's lots of free space inside of the housing. I might* Remove some of that free space and reduce this downward angle at the same time.

*I have removed this space and uploaded an updated version called j1772hanger_smaller. It has the same wall footprint, so your existing screw holes can be reused. I have also added the requested air hole.

The smaller hanger bracket only has a clearance of 24 millimeters between the inside of the plug house and the underside of the underside of the cord hanger. Please measure your plug to make sure it will fit.

Printer Brand:



MakerGear M2








If printing in PLA or PET+, scale at 100%. The print will work fine, but the plastic will be brittle if left in the sunlight and may break when bumped by anybody walking past.

If printing in ABS, scale up to 101%, or the printout may be too tight to fit your plug in.
You may wish to add a skirt to prevent warping. You know your printer better than I do.

Build it: 19 hours in a MarkForged. Came out really nice without supports, etc. However, J1772 plug from a Volt charger is NOT retained, it just slips out...bummer.

On most printers you should not need support to print this. None of the angles are over 45 degrees.

Not fitting is surprising. I am assuming it fits all of the way in under the hood. Is there a clip with a thumb button that just isn't clicking?

If you can get a few pictures up I'd be interested in fixing the design if it's possible. Maybe cut off the hood to get a better view if you need to.

On 2nd try, it may have been a sticky latching tab that was not extending properly. This is an older charger that has suffered some abuse; new JuiceBox on the way -- I'll try it with that and report back next week.
Thanks for the design!

Maide it at 103% and it fit perfectly! 100% is to tight and 105% way to loose!


Thank you for uploading this holder, I've printed it and just tried it, but it's really snug.

In fact, it is so snug that getting the connector out is a pain. I've drilled a small hole in the bottom of the groove near the base so that it does not pull vacuum.

I've added the air hole to the newer versions of the files. Thanks for the suggestion.

I scaled it up to 105% and it works perfectly for me.

Thank You, for this design - Exactly what I was looking for....
