      Comments about Autocraft Battery Post Shims:

      My 2007 Santa Fe wasn't starting and the first thing I checked was the battery cable connections. The vehicle has an aftermarket battery with narrower posts than the factory battery. These shims made the posts slightly bigger, which allowed me to tighten down the battery clamps and get a good solid connection. They're also very malleable, so you can use simple tools (or your fingers) to shape them as necessary. These shims are an inexpensive problem solver.

      Comments about Autocraft Battery Post Shims:

      I bought a new car battery but apparently, the new batteries have different diameter posts than the old. The battery cables kept slipping off the posts randomly and the car would not start. I was told to replace the battery cables but not even the new cables fit so I searched and came across these shims. They work great and solved my problems.

      Solved the problem perfectly

      Comments about Autocraft Battery Post Shims:

      Replaced battery in '07 Nissan Xterra, and had connection issues (single click when attempting to start the vehicle.) Diagnosed issue as a loose negative battery terminal connection, but couldn't tighten the clamp any further. Installed this shim, flared clamp out with a screwdriver, and tightened down hard. Now the clamp won't wiggle at all, and the connection is better than it ever was. This thing was just the ticket.
