Warning: issue with wires having eyelets

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.

Comments about AutoCraft Top Post Battery Terminals, Toolless:

Wasn't tool-less installation in the end, I had to use pliers to hold the thumb nut steady when dropping the lever to tighten. Only when doing this did I get them tight enough to not move around on the posts.

Like another reviewer, I had eyelets on my cables, and so had to improvise something to give conductivity from the top plated to the battery.

Worst of all, while tightening the bolts holding the cables to it, the positive terminal cracked almost all the way across. Guess they'll be going back tomorrow.

      Comments about AutoCraft Top Post Battery Terminals, Toolless:

      I debated spending the extra dollar for this product vs the standard screw one. Glad I did. The lever makes installation and removal of the terminals a breeze. I just installed the terminals so I can't say how they will last long term. If you're considering these and the traditional version definitely go with these.

          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...
