This is a very good thing, but please remind the people in product development that the official build instructions for the enclosure include moving the xLCD as well... In order for this product to make sense, we also need a quick release for the xLCD cable. Thanks to the quick release nuts in the enclosure, the PSU has always been the smaller issue of the two.

+1, would like to see something official for the xlcd as well. Here's an unofficial way to do it, credits to @bluex_904957 :

Yeah, got it a while ago and biggest negative is that the connector did not fully snap onto PSU holder. It's bit frustrating and I might have to add something to wedge so it did not get loose when I unplug the connectors.

It will snap into place but it is hard to do and takes a bit of work to get it locked in.  The locking tabs push in when they go through the hole but don't fully expand back out once they are on the other side.

If you push it  through the hole and get one side snapped into place, can wiggle the connector and  use a small screw driver to gently push the tab into place so both sides are locked in.     It is a tight fit but does work.

Tried everything, I’ll take picture tomorrow and post it.

See red circle where the "snap in" was off. If you try to plug in, it came out. I just need something to wedge in between so that it can lock it in.

RE: PSU Cable Quick-release for Original Prusa Enclosure (MK4)

This is exactly what my connector was doing.

The small step on the tab needs to be on the other side of the plate so it locks into place.  You need to take a small screw driver and press the tab inwards towards the connector and slightly down.  This will allow the small step on the tab to go under the plate and hold the connector in place.   The tab should look exactly like the other side once in is correctly in place.

I ordered my enclosure prior to the release of the MK4 PSU adapter, at the time it was all they had. Now, learning I wasted $47 plus shipping, I'd like to simply MAKE it work. Anyone have a part number (from anywhere) for the board connector and the round ins so I can add the ground? Thanks

RE: PSU Cable Quick-release for Original Prusa Enclosure (MK4)

I recently purchased a MK4 printer and enclosure.  Assembled the printer first and ran some parts I needed.  The printer instructions were great.  Now to the enclosure, I found I had to undue many aspects of the printer and mentally anticipate which add-ons may affect the enclosure install in order to avoid construction something only to have to immediately undue it.  I am stumped what the PSU quick connect kit bought me, the printer is still tethered to the enclosure via the LCD cables.   I had anticipated an enclosure which basically sat over the printer allowing use of the enclosure or not.  The enclosure and printer modifications are cumbersome to say the least.
