    Great product

    Installs easily for a perfectly snug fit. Better quality and fit than most universal battery terminals.

    I tried these on my 1991 Toyota pickup. The wire going to the negative terminal was bare and the two going to the positive had eyelets on their ends. I installed the negative wires into the channel between the terminal bolts. The channel is not epoxy covered and conductivity was fine (but I had to make sure the wire was well set within the channel). I attached the 2 positive eyelets to the bolts and between the plate and the terminal. The terminals under the plate are epoxy covered and there was no conductivity. My guess is that you could file the epoxy off and they would work with eyelets. I just put back my original positive terminal and called it a day.

        This product is a good idea, but fails in practical application. The terminals are extremely hard to get snug enough and continually come loose. I am replacing them with traditional nut and bolt terminals.

              They were easy to install, and are easy to recognize which is positive or negative. they work as advertised, you can install or remove from battery post without tools in seconds. Wish I had bought these a long time ago.

                      I have had these connectors for 6 months and they continue to come loose, despite having them professionally serviced more than once. They are very easy to install but they are not worth the hassel of always having them come loose and my truck not starting until I go under the hood and manually tighten them. Buy different connectors...

                          I do a lot of electrical work on my jeep due to bad wiring (its a jeep, lol) and aftermarket lighting, etc and it got really tiring having to bring out the wrench every time i had to remove the terminals from the battery, but leaving them loose enough to remove isn't a good idea, with these terminals it takes all of 5 seconds to remove the terminals and reattach them! the only thing i didnt like was how small the area for the wiring was but its a standard size for most terminals. I will also be purchasing a set to add to our camper so we can change out the battery or disconnect it quickly when needed.
