Just got mine today and am super frustrated by the design of the chassis.
The lack of integrated mounting points means this thing will either:
Have to hang off of the faucet (I’d rather not hang all that weight on the faucet handle)
Attach a short piece of hose and have it lay in on the ground. (Also terrible!)
I’m going to reach out to Orbit to see if they would be willing to give me a 3d model of the external case so that I can more easily design and print with my 3d printer a wall mounting bracket that I can snap the case into.
If they won’t I guess I’ll be spending a while with my calipers taking measurements…
Design, it’s not that hard people. Also, all the hose fittings being PLASTIC on something this expensive is inexcusable.
Before you purchased this product, did you see that product application pictures ? This timer was never designed with any mounting bracket to start with. It was designed to screw onto the faucet, similar to other brand timers.
Not sure Orbit will give you the 3D model of the external case, this is their design (property).
