  • Q:

    Hi,
    Can you tell me what hold down kit I would need for an Autocraft 56-1 battery. I purchased the battery for a 1986 F-150 and it appears the old battery was a larger size/width. This battery is about 6 inches wide. Thanks. Steve

      I recommend getting Part No. AC107/A7000159 (AutoCraft Battery Hold Down Brackets).
      Advance Auto Parts actually does sell it online:
      http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/autocraft-battery-hold-down-brackets-2pk-ac107-a7000159/6283683-P?navigationPath=L1*14920%7CL2*15001
      If you don't already have J-hooks or L-hooks, you will probably need to buy J-hooks or L-hooks along with this item. You will need to investigate and measure your battery tray area to get the right size(9", 10", 12", etc.) and type of hooks. You can adjust the AutoCraft Battery Hold Down Brackets to hold a battery as small as about 5" wide up to about 7.5" wide. That's the solution that I used, and now it will hold down any battery that I buy in the future. You might have to cut off the top of any J-hook/L-hook that stick up above the battery bracket once it is completely tightened or you might damage the hood(which I found out the hard way).

      Hello Ann. This battery hold down has a width of 5.3 inches. The battery measures 6inches. Online we do not have a hold down of this with but your local store has a selection of universal style hold downs that should work better.

    • A:

      If your battery is 7 inches wide, this item will not fit your battery. The actual dimensions are more like what is described in Ann/Panda's post above. I purchased this item and tried to use it on the type 27F battery(7 inches wide) in my 2012 Nissan Titan and it was not wide enough. Instead of purchasing this item, I would recommend getting Part No. AC107/A7000159 (AutoCraft Battery Hold Down Brackets) and whatever J-hooks or L-hooks you need. You can adjust the AutoCraft Battery Hold Down Brackets to hold a battery as small as about 5" wide up to about 7.5" wide. That's the solution that I used, and now it will hold down any battery that I buy in the future. You might have to cut off the top of any J-hook/L-hook that stick up above the battery bracket once it is completely tightened or you might damage the hood(which I found out the hard way). I think it is very negligent that Advance Auto Parts/CarQuest does not provide the size of this item in the description, or what size battery it will fit. The instructions written on the back of the package are difficult to read/see/understand. If you still decide you want to try to use this item, I recommend taking all your tools with the vehicle in which you plan to install it to the Advance Auto Parts/CarQuest parking lot and try to install it there, that way you can save yourself a few trips back and forth if you need to return it and/or purchase additional items for it.

  • Q:

    What else do I need to actually hold the battery down? I seem to remember (when I was in the store)
    that this only has the bar, and you have to buy something else -- maybe the J-screw things...

      This should be all you need to secure the battery

      You may need no additional hardware depending on what is currently installed in your vehicle. We suggest that you visit your local Advance Auto Parts store to verify what if any additional screws or fasteners may be needed.
