I had been using the Hot End Chain Links by FedorSosnin, for some time, but it kept popping off, which was very annoying. The other problem is that it is taller than it needs to be, which takes up a little bit of the build height on my Ender 3.
I designed an all new Hot End Chain Connection, which will never pop off and is short enough that I still can print the full built height on my Ender 3 of 250 mm (ymmv). This Hot End connection is two parts which require a single M3 x 12 mm bolt (or longer). The bolt hole is threaded, so no nut or taping should be required (depending on how well your printer is tuned) It also captures the hot end cables, so they can not fall out.

I also remixed the Extruder Chain Connection, so that it sits lower. This still requires a single M3 x 12 mm bolt.

This design still uses the original Cable Chain Links for johnniewhiskey. I am using 15 links. I have included his stl files, so all the parts needed are in this one download. They have not been modified.
You need 15 (or more if desired).
...and one of these covers.
All these parts should be printable without supports.
Disclaimer: I do not have access to an A10 printer, but since this is a Remix of FedorSosnin's model, it should fit the same as his.
