J1772 "dummy" hooded inlet EVSE holder install (with photos)

Sun Mar 02, 2014 4:27 pm

A little while back I ordered an EVSE dummy holder from here : http://erroneus.myevblog.com/buy-plastic-parts-here/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; If you have your own 3D printer, you can print your own here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:154452" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I was impressed by the quality when it arrived. Very sturdy plastic. Also interesting to see the way it was 'printed' layer by layer!

It was only available in orange for the ABS plastic version when I ordered, but it appears that black is an option now. I ended up painting it a color to match my house and mounting it near some other hardware hidden behind trees and bushes.

Now I don't need to constantly open and close my garage when I'm frequently charging in my driveway. I only keep it in the garage in more extreme weather or when I won't be charging for a few days.

A few photos:

Nice!

FWIW: My Schneider EVSE comes with a similar gadget that's meant to hang the cord on. See: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Schneider-El ... eider+EVSE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I see they're no longer on sale, I got mine for $599.00

I have printed a couple. The only problem is that it takes my Makerbot clone all day. I can see why people want so much for them.
:
2013 Pearl White SL Premium
Traded for a Cirrus White 2014 Mercedes B (totaled)
2016 Urano Gray eGolf SEL w/ drive assist
Loved the VW but it sat too low for my old body
Back to a Cirrus White 2017 B250e
White Ioniq limited.It sits just fine
