          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.

                  Pathetic design.
                  More in the worthless parts category which, sadly, is GROWING.

                  Guarenteed to break before 1 year, so keep your receipt! I have been through two already. I had to replace them every year for State Inspection.

                    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.

                      I bought this Battery Hold Down in March of 2011 and in August 2011 I noticed that the rubber part of the hold down was tore in half so it was no longer holding the battery in place. I still had my receipt and Advance Auto Honored their 1 year warrenty and I got a different kind this time to replace it.
