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.

Questions & Answers

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

Would this work on a travel trailer battery

Asked by: MACM
As long as the battery is a top-mounted terminal style battery and fits the 5/8th of an inch diameter you should have no problem using it for that application.

When you turn the green knob to disconnect the power, or remove the green knob all together, your battery will not drain
