New filament guide

Hello,
I would like to suggest my design for the filament guide that holds the cable over the spool.
Recently I had a problem when the printer head is moving in the X direction. The cable made a clutching noise and made the printer head skit. I affected the quality of the print, so I tried to fix the cable with masking tape to make it more "loose". It worked good, but the cable slowly slipped of the tape. I tried this little part that would have the same flex as the masking tape and it work great. If anyone else has this problem, you should try this out!
