great built terminal

some posts.well need shaved ,wont.fit all.battery terminals! But that's good.tighter is always better and its very easy to shave a lead post! dude used a hammer to beat the post n terminal.......hello your battery post well drop inside the battery! the bonus is you can use the two bolts for 1/0+ ring terminals and use the 4ga sides for your factory wireing

VS
Small Inner Diameter

Pros: - Looks nice with no signs of corrosion - Ease of install/use - Cheap Cons: - Inner diameter is too small My original terminal was too big for my battery and would sometimes slip off when driving on rough terrain even when tightened down as much as it will go. So, I bought the MA Audio MBT1 to replace the original factory negative battery terminal on my car. It was gold plated so it won't corrode and it was very cheap. BUT, it turns out the MBT1's inner diameter is too small for my battery terminal. It only goes on about halfway and won't budge any more. I don't want to hammer it on because there are times when I want to remove the terminal. If I grind some metal off the inside, it would probably lose the inner gold plating. So it's only halfway on but tightened down. I'm not worried about it slipping off but it's not quite right. Hopefully my next battery will have a smaller post, otherwise I might have to buy a different terminal.

The side terminals are ok but the terminal ring to the battery does not fit a standard battery terminal. I tried stretching it to make it fit but they both broke.

This terminal did not fit my standard battery at all. Ended up using a standard terminal from the store. Prefered Ring Terminals anyways. Save your money, this will not fit even after prying it open with wedges.

This was not an easy hookup for me at all. I have an oversized battery in my 1999 Chevy Tahoe and I had to really customize my installation in order to get this terminal on the battery post. I had to use a hammer to securely get this terminal on my battery post and wound up stripping the post on my battery. Nontheless it did get the job done but at what cost? Spend a few more dollars if you have a big battery in your car and stay clear of this terminal.

This ring makes connecting your wiring to your battery SUPER easy! And it definitely doesn't look too bad either! Gold is fine by me. :)
