Super Easy Battery Sling Substitute

Batteries are quite heavy and usually located in an area that requires leaning over to reach. Lifting heavy loads while leaning causes back strain problems, so it pays to use a battery removal strap to make things easier.

Can't find the strap or don't have one? No problem—just take off your belt and slide one end under and around the center of the battery case. Pull the ends together tightly, just enough to get your hand under, then use the belt as a sling to remove the battery.

Caution: Be careful of the belt buckle and never use metal chains or cables on a battery. These could "short" the battery terminals, causing catastrophic results.
