I have made and installed these with very little trouble. https://www.thingiverse.com/make:682941

My only, very minor notes are:

  1. It would be nice if the hole through the thickest part of the grips was wider to accommodate a thicker driver. The driver I used (see my Make) doesn't have much clearance before expanding to about 4.5mm, so a 5-6mm clearance would have been handy.
  2. It's hard to line up the screw closest to the thickest part of the grip. However, it would have been easier if I could have used the driver on that screw instead of the cheap Allen key I resorted to.

Otherwise, it was very smooth sailing! I'm looking forward to giving these a spin in TV and handheld modes soon.

Thanks for the Thing!

Useful feedback! Must confess I didn't consider the screwdriver issue, I've so many lying around that I hadn't considered others might only have wider ones. I'll upload a slightly tweaked version for wider drivers. That way people have the option! Thanks for the feedback!
