Tesla J1772 Adapter

I have one of those cheap plastic doohickies* that allows me to dock the end of my tesla charger cable outside while the actual wall charger unit is inside the garage. Convenient and even survived getting popped off by me backing up into it, slid it back on its base and good to go...

Now though, switching to a ChargePoint charger so I can get a better deal on the power I use from my utility- so I have to use the J1772 Adapter, but that thing is too short and fat to fit in the present holster*. I don't want to take off the adapter every time, put it somewhere, then dock the J1772, I want to just leave the adapter on and dock it.... anyone doing anything like this- finding a tesla charger cable holster that holds onto the 'shorter' snout section of the adapter??

The geometry doesn't look all that complicated, just need an opening and a 'nub' that is closer to the opening by just a few mm than the holster I have. The plastic on the holder is too thin to dremel out and I don't want to grind down the adapter...


There are a million versions of these, but they all seem to be made for the tesla charger cables, not the adapter:

I would just hang the J1772 connector with the Tesla adapter attached over a hook. There is a risk that someone could walk off with your Tesla adapter. The ultimate solution is a second Tesla vehicle in your driveway. That way you would always have a place for the Tesla charging adapter and it would be locked in the charging port.

I have no idea how long it takes to print. Pre-COVID I had it printed at the local library. I gave them the file and they had it done in a week or two. I paid about $2.35 for material. I've used makexyz.com to print a cell phone tray extender and that cost around $12 shipped. That's another option.

I did have my friend's geeky son print some of the tow-plate removal tools from LivingTesla. Those I got for free :)

Group buy a spool of white/red plastic? Lol. I have a printer more than happy to click print a few times for someone local enough to pick up, way too much work to coordinate offering to ship them around the country for $1 worth of plastic. I haven’t looked at the model but that looks like a 4-6 hour print ish? Solid maybe 12...
