Excellent design. I had an idea for something similar, then found yours which is better than what I was thinking. Thank you.

Got all the source files from your website, printed this in ABS with no raft or support. It came out beautiful. I like the way you select to generate a cap or grommet in the SCAD. I made a much wider flange and put 4 tabs on it. One notable thing is the number of tabs must be 2 or 4 (I tried 3 and it generated a part with 4 tabs). I used it for the same purpose (70" Wallmounted TV installation in drywall) Thanks for a great design! Better than the stuff thats commercially available.

I'm so pleased that it's been useful to you! Yes the limitation of either 0, 2 or 4 tabs is intentional - I can't remember why now, but I am sure there was a good reason. Probably laziness :)

You say its fully parametric, but there is no SCAD file included, its just STL files.

Sorry, I have moved all my source files to http://www.fabfabbers.com/models/user/chrisjrobhttp://www.fabfabbers.com/mode... - this was mentioned in the instructions, but of course these are no longer shown on the model page by default.

Oh no! This is exactly what I need but the SCAD file isn't on the files page and the URL you provide doesn't work (DNS doesn't resolve for fabfabbers.com) :'(

You're right, that's a shame. I will update all my items at some point, in the meantime see github/Chrisjrob. https://github.com/chrisjrob/grommet

Brilliant. Thank you!

Small lips like that are usually ok to print, I've seen it in other working designs.
