    I could not find one of those commercially available, but Thingiverse had some files. I don't have a 3D Printer, so I send the files to kirby's Hub and he did a great job!

    I thought this might be a nice solution for others in the same boat, and you might even mount them cleaner than I did :)

    Thingiverse files:

    Tesla Wall Connector Cable Organizer by TooMuchFun (print at 107% or 108%)

    He also made the logo red for me, which I thought was really cool!

    I printed one of these, it works great. I did 100% fill and .1mm thick layers.

    I don't know 3D printing. So can you advise the following since I'd like to get a holder for the charger.
    - via Kirby's Hub, which 3D printer did you select?
    - which Marvin level?
    - I'd like to get the "Tesla" in silver, so I'll ask the Kirby team once I know the above answers.

    I bought a finished 3D printed part off Panjo for my UMC charger and mounted it today with a $15 vacuum holder (I increased the size of the screw holes since I wanted them flush so the cable isn't rubbed when resting on the holder). My setup as shown.

    I don't know what a Marvin level is? I just uploaded the files. I think I picked the cheapest options. He offered to add the red for me, but you could ask about the silver.

    For historical purposes.... this is the seller I bought my lightning bolt UMC holder from.
