Voltmeter + USB Power + Garage Door opener button

After waiting for a couple of months for an AliExpress order I was finally able to install a voltmeter, USB Power and garage door opener. The silicone cover is nice because it really dims the display. It looks bigger than it is perched on top of the clutch resevior, but that is just the camera perspective. The Amp readout is specifically for the draw of the USB outlet, so not really useful.



The button bezel lights up but is bright AF so I left it unlit.

When I have access to the 3D printer at the my local library library again (still closed due to covid) I am going to make a 1mm plate to fill the gap between side panels of the box. The spacing is dictated by the screws for the clutch reservoir it is attached to. The two side panels attach to the reservoir and then the box is screwed in.

It is wired to a switched port on my Fuse Block.

How are you attaching it to the reservoir?

I bought a little adapter that plugs into the SAE quick connect for the battery tender. Has a power button and a couple USB ports off the side of it.

I drilled two holes in the sides of the box, turned them facing in and it is 1mm off from a perfect fit for the width of the reservoir screws.

So, I screw the box'es side panels to the resevoir first, then place the box in and screw it in.

I just took it off to try something so here is a pic of it. It is more than strong enough with one screw so I didn't attach the right side (I just screwed it only to the box), so now I only have to take off the left box side to get it off and there is no longer any gap.
