The newest revision of the PCB holder was used in this assembly. A couple changes were necessary including larger holes for the zip tie and a differently sized hole for the USB plug. The USB hole should be shorter and wider to accommodate typical USB plugs. After using the zip tie once, it seems to be a great addition. Plus, red zip ties were easy to find so they match the color.

A hole was cut in the pipe using a drill and a hack saw blade. The hack saw blade was to extend the hole with straight lines instead of drilling numerous round holes. After making an adequate hole, it was clear that the PCB holder would never be easy to install while it was such a minimal length. It should be lengthened to cover any edges of the holes.

 LEDs were attached to the buttplate and PCB holder. The butt plate was printed so that the parts which enter the tagger would be the most reliable but this meant that the parts which faced the LEDs were not so reliable. Next time, it should be printed so the LED holder is the reliable portion. The screw holes should also be larger.
