    Need a Positive battery Terminal

    I want to replace this.


    I have problems keeping it tight and it is difficult to work with. Any recommendations?

    Re: Need a Positive battery Terminal

    These work perfect,with use of Copper ring terminals, and heatshrinked.Use any size wire needed with ring terminals,I run to all post on both my batteries in my truck,and check all my connections once a month if driving daily for security,use a socket to tighten,rather than the phillips,to get it tight!XS is made by Stinger fyi

    I ended up picking one of these up, it's at the house and waiting for me, for when I get back and do the big 3!

    You'll have to swing by one day and check it all out.


    To the OP, I highly recommend what @audiobaun recommended, I use them, they are great

    Yes they do, very, very tight. They have a little ring in there for if you have a slightly smaller negative terminal also..

    They sure do,especially if you put some *** on them,but always a good method that you check your connections one a month on a daily driver due to bumpy/as s roads these days/Great tax paying roads we have these days

    You can go to AutoZone/Orileys/HomeDepot to get those Cheaply,Take the Screw with you,and find the ring terminal you want(4/2/0ga)and find the Outlet for it to fit snugg..Think I bought 3/8,or 5/16.Copper ring terminals,to crimp,then use a punch to make sure they stay tight,and heat shrink them/can buy hshrink cheaply at HomeDepot/Lowes in electrical section as well,I use pure copper connection ring terminals.
