Do you have trouble leveling the Ender 3 bed or keeping it leveled? Traditional 4-point leveling can actually deform the heated bed, causing it to bend and twist out of shape.
The Modular Ender 3 Y-Carriage Plate Upgrade corrects this problem. Using our unique bar design, an additional mounting point is created that makes 3-point leveling possible on the stock Ender 3 heated bed. It take far less time to level and will maintain a flat printing surface longer than before.
The Ender 3 Y-Carriage Plate Upgrade Kit is a drop-in replacement and includes all necessary hardware for the conversion. Please check Upgrade the Y-Carriage Plate for Ender 3 Guide for installation details.

GoPro Camera Mount and Handle Bar
The Camera Mount is perfect for timelapse videos or live streaming on Octoprint. Designed to fit GoPro cameras, it mounts to the Modular Ender-3 Y Carriage Plate, using the standard GoPro frame mount and fixed tilt screw.
Full Width Handle Bar
Based on the popular Ender-3 Bed Handle, this design has been adapted to fit the Modular Ender-3 Y Carriage Plate. The Handle Bar makes it easy to slide the heated bed while it's hot, preventing burns and other injuries during use.

3 point is hard to get used to, but the plate offers to use both
Well packed, excellent quality
I was gifted this for Christmas. I waited to install it until after I received the heated bed upgrade and PEI sheet from Gulf Coast Robotics. After I got it, I installed everything. Installation was easy and feels so solid and much better than the standard carrier. The 3 point leveling is so nice as well. I'm excited.
You should go check out my review on the aluminum bed and heater pad combo, as I forgot which item I was reviewing halfway thru 🤣
Long story short, I can manually level this from completely unaligned in minutes. It took me twice as long (or more) to level my 4 point carriage when it was already setup and merely needed tweaked to proper position. Well worth my time, especially for such a reasonable price!
I'm not sure if GCR recommends replacing the leveling springs with spacers or not, but I'm going to explore it because the carriage and new bed are just so sturdy. Really happy with these!
Will save hours leveling bed. So much easier and flatter than stock.
