If you have a kid that has a Razor scooter, you probably have this problem. :)

This is a parametric plug that can be used with an elastic cord to cover the end of a pipe. Using the default settings, it fits the ends of the handles of my kids' Razor kick scooters.

This also works with Customizer.


Choose some values in the "User-defined values" section if necessary, render, and print. Drill out the internal bridging, if necessary.

After I took the photo, I reprinted them in black ABS with 12 bottom layers, 3 top layers, 3 perimeters, and 25% honeycomb infill. This makes the plug solid plastic on the outside and a little bit into the pipe itself, which I'm pretty sure will be stronger than the PLA I used in the photo.

To replace an existing plug, grab the elastic band and clamp the end so it doesn't to into the pipe. (I used a clothes pin.) Drill out the old plug if necessary. Untie or cut the knot at the end of the elastic, thread it though the new plug, and re-tie. You may need to file the inside of the tube a bit if its really banged up.

BTW: awesome camera work!

One day we'll have a printable handle foam, too!
(seriously, I have had to replace this part, after many tears!)

Thanks! Yeah, it's amazing how much abuse those handles take. We'll have to see how those printed plugs hold up over time still...
