Yeah.. I think that's the one that just needs to be scaled up. I asked a co-worker to print one out and he found that and printed it. Took out my J1772 adapter to test fit it at work. It was a no go. He then found the ones that were scaled up and it works pretty well now.

Now I just need to buy my own 3-d printer and no longer have to bug people at work for stuff.

Here’s the difference between the old version (left) and new one I managed to print at 108%. @96s46p has the correct link that I used

Correction - I used this link with bigger logo

@garsh linked it correctly that I didn’t see. It’s that hisbhiw phenomenon

I will also add a critique of this design... not sure if this is a copy of something tesla has put out there, or something someone designed from scratch, but the upper screw is all but useless with it pointing upward. for any strengh, it should be angled downward, so any gravity pull from the cord pulls down on the screw, toward the wall instead of pulling the screw out of the wall.

The way it is designed the downward force wants to torque the bracket away from the wall so the angled screw has more surface area resisting that force. Plus you can actually screw it in. It isn't perfect but I haven't had any problems. It doesn't fit snugly around the charging handle but it doesn't fall out either. I don't like the big logo version though.
