thanks Jules,
those don't look like mine, as mine do not have the front downward tab.
Is this an improvement?
If so, I will print 4 to swap out.

I'm not sure, but those were the only ones I could find. ;)

I took mine off. Totally unnecessary for the glass since it gets snuggled in by the rubber corners. (You might have to reset the Starting Height though if you do.)

if unnecessary, then maybe I will just remove mine too!

We do not advise removing the clamps.

The clamp design continues to be tweaked. We also include a few extra with the printer.

Yes, that is up to date. Printed in ABS.

Definitely run the clamps.... If you don't and your heat plate is warped at all you will not maintain a proper level, the clamps hold everything flat against the actual leveling screws.

Those new ones with the downward tab work much better than the old style anyway. It's much easier to lock them back in place because the curved tab rides over the edge of the glass better.
