What are the screws for? Looking at the images posted, it appears they aren't the hinge points.

Screws are optional, just for keeping the cables inside. Most drag chains have a roof, it serves as such, you don't need all of them, just a few, but you will need to glue the bolts or tighten them with two nuts.

how do you find the bolts and nuts? do you tighten them with 2 nuts so that they are still free to twist? otherwise there may be issues with nuts comming loose :s locktite is also good for this :)

Yep, sorry for the delay, I glue them, but you may use two nuts if you wish.

It is amusing to see how many people design and print something, thinking they are the first. A search will reveal many have done this. Don't worry too much, I did the same thing.

 i use the fully printable one on my prusa, so neat.

I know there are another models, still i didn't like them this is a bit simplier to fit toghether and it uses very little plastic :p

That is why I made this design. Also the end-links werent very useful for my intentions with the drag chain.
