Updated mount design! The Ellipse 2.0 mount has thicker side walls, and the counterbore for the bolts is deeper to cover most water bottle bolt heads. As before, the Ellipse mount allows you to customize, modify, and 3d print to properly fit your bike. Use the screws on your water bottle cage or straps to fit it elsewhere on your bike.

very happy with the lock holder fits like a glove. Have one suggestion. Flip the shackle hole so that the lock sits in the holder with the touch pad facing up. This way you can access the touch pad to unlock the lock especially in cases where the phone doesn't want to connect to the lock which sometimes happens.

I tried printing this with my Robox printer and the software stated that this design file has meshing issues, and low and behold it didnt' print properly. How did you orient this on your printing bed?

hey Alan. I would have no idea how to orient the design. I bought the Lattis Elipse lock holder through the site that does the printing for you. I don't have a printer myself or any experience printing 3d. I only noticed that when the lock is in the holder that the touch pad is inaccessible. Thought there might be an easy way to flip the design? I don't know who the original designer of the lock holder is.

Thanks for the explanation. Good to know about the design issues from your end. Will keep trying on my end. Love the lock though :)

So looks like you understand what I mean about the lock being upsidedown in the holder. ;-) I also love the lock. Had a bit of trouble getting it working properly again since the last major update to the software but it's working well now. Actually has better bluetooth range and connects faster and the "find my lock" seems to be working. Haven't tried the "crash alert" or "theft alert" yet. I did notice that (with Android in any case), you do have to sometimes close the app and reopen it in order for it to reconnect when you have been out of range with your phone. All in all a nice piece of tech. Did you have anything to do with the design of the original lock holder?

I purchased my lock used, and had to reach out to the manufacturer to get the default unlock code, so as to pair it to my account. Took a while to get a response out of them. I'm finding that the lock doesn't have a super long BT range. I usually have to be just within a few feed in order to connect the app (iPhone 6S), and sometimes I do have to quit the app and reopen. This renders my theft alert function useless, but I don't much care for that anyways. I just want to avoid carrying a key while having a secure lock. This accomplishes it.

I'm going to try and mirror the design in MeshMixer and print again. That should then position the lock in the mount with the keypad facing up.

same thing for me on the android phone. Not a great bt range but it does seem to have improved. I also don't really care about the theft alert or the accident reporting. I'm really curious to see if you get some results with doing the mirror image. Common sense dictates that that should work and get the lock in the right way around. Hope you get some acknowlegement from Lattis Ellipse!!! Let me know if it works. I would buy a copy of the printed holder from you if it's possible!!

It would be cool to see some pics of how this is being/could be customized.
