Worked perfectly. Does a good job of holding the battery down, better than the baling wire that was on there when I got the pickup!

      Comments about AutoCraft Universal Battery Hold-Down:

      I've purchased this product twice both two different vehicles; one a small pickup truck and the other a 4-door sedan. The rubber broke on both and then the terminal connections became so loose it created the negative cable on the truck to require replacement. I wish I could get my money back but it is not worth the hassle.

              Absolute junk. Thing lasted literally about 2 months, then broke in half. One half almost ended up in the radiator fan. Probably could have caused significant damage. Went against my better judgment and bought this, avoid this product.

                      This couldn't be worse if it were made of popsicle sticks. It lasted for about nine months then broke. During its life, it had to be readjusted many times... Get something better.

                        Comments about AutoCraft Universal Battery Hold-Down:

                        We had a holddown on one side only so we used a band saw to cut one of the ends down but leave a hole where we could bolt the strap to the bracket in the vehicle. Because the holddown is flexible and plastic/rubber it allowed us to easily make the necessary modifications. Our use was a 95 4runner. I could see where it might not fit some vehicles with extremely limited space around the battery because the lugs are pretty wide.

                            Hi Genesis, I'm glad to assist you! This is universal and is not application specific. You would have to match one by size to what is on the vehicle that can be fabricated into its place. The size of this hold down kit is 6-7/8 inches.
