I just installed a BL Touch and when it tried to auto home the first time the head slammed into the bed and the motor started grinding.  After shutting it off to prevent any damage I found that the pin on the BL Touch is not dropping further than the hot end on the head, causing the hot end to slam into the bed.

Yes, it's mounted wayyy too high.
Use this bracket for example:

I agree. I wonder where the original bracket came from?
Looks similar to the one I have, from Technology Outlet, but mine sits lower. I get a Z-offset of -3.2
