Could you make one so the clamp is wider than 30mm? My headboard is a bit wider than that, about 51mm.

Hey sry I havent responded, been caught up with life. Still need this adjusted?

Could you post the STEP files or the Inventor/Solidworks files by chance?

Hi thecrazy. I'm not the person you are replying to but I wouldn't mind an adjustment. Our headboard is about 41mm thick (IKEA Malm). I've been trying to adjust it myself but I'm a 3D printing newbie and am struggling with modeling. I can print fine though!

Thanks!

Did you ever find a solution to this? I just measured my headboard, and it's about 40mm too.

I just made my own since the author never responded. I made it specifically for my headboard, and without a clamp (just a tension clip). It works well enough.

I printed this at recommended settings and it works fine. The screw threads didn't need adjusting for size. It's a good thing! Thanks!

Glad it worked out. I am still using the original one I printed after 3 years! Didn't have to replace a single part. Only issue is the headboard clamp tends to widen with the years, requiring tightening (not often). Would probably hold its shape better with polycarbonate or nylon. When mine breaks i'll probably redesign it. Btw the hose clamp can let the hose slide if pulled, would you guys prefer If I added ridges in there to prevent this (lock it in place)?

FYI I have been using this for over 2 years and its still holding. Check the quality of your plastic and your print settings if you have any issues.

I second your motion for a "Health" category.
