It really wasn't hard to open the spring release


Spring cage connections work well with tinned wires, unlike screw terminals, these connectors are designed for both solid, and stranded wires.

Use a push pin to open the spring works best. You can push it in and it will stay in place until you pull it out.

Actually what I use is a "straight pin" (snagged from wife's sewing stuff) works good. I think the head of a push pin would get in the way.

I suppose a opened "safety pin" would work also.

The brake spring from an XTR Trail brake works perfectly

On the Duet Wifi Diagram, you have the Hotend Pos/Neg going to E1 on the Duet board, that should be to E0.
