Battery Shutoff Switch w/Instructions is rated 4.333333333333333 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from More Info The product desxcriotion does not mention that the Fuse Link is included. So I added one to my order for $4.00 and I now have two in hand. :( Does installing the Fuse Link not defeat the purpose of slow battery drainage? The diameter of the cable side is 1mm smaller than the diameter of the battery post side. My cable clamp could not be sufficiently tightened, unless I added a sleeve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job It is as advertised. However it could use a little more material on the square head side both on the bolt and the clamp to keep it from turning. I needed a second wrench on one of the three I purchased but I will be buying more for use on my antique tractors. It will be a problem at the time of removal since there is so little head to put a wrench on once the unit is corroded.

Since the positive post is larger than the negative can this switch be used on the positive terminal. Will the automobile cable fasten to the terminal on the switch 

Asked by: Docweaver
The terminal on the back of the switch is 5/8th of an inch in diameter.
