Just to show you how this would operate, you have this plastic thumb screw; just unscrew it. Once it get it fully unscrewed, you can see this part will disconnect and you can see basically what you do is right here on this part, you can see the clamp sort of onion This is what you would clamp to your cable connection.
This part you can see has the hole. This is what would go on the top post of the battery. This would stay on the battery. What you would do is just put the cable connected to it, put your thumb wheel on there, tighten it down, and it gives you a good lead-to-lead connection.

That should do it for the review on part number DW, the Deka lead quick-disconnect battery terminal. The price is excellent. The material is durable. My nit-picky gripe is that the black knob must be loosened and then one entire half of the terminal must be removed.
Other products - which, yes, cost a few bucks more - disconnect with just a quarter-turn of the knob. This disconnect is better suited for occasional rather than daily use. It's lead, not steel, so it won't rust.
I bought two of them and the first one broke in about 4 month. So have the second one on now so far so good. But I would like to say thank you for checking up on the product I bought. Because I am from Canada and cost me a lot of money. Very pleased and happy with the durability and quality of your products.. It makes removing the battery so much easier.. The time saved also makes it worth every penny.. Positive Batter Cable was short and would not reach other connector.
This quick connect worked good. Save me from buying a new positive cable and having it installed. Product arrived before expected and quality is what I expected. I have ordered from etrailer at least three times and have always had prompt delivery. Somewhat of a pain to unhook the two pieces to disconnect the power.
Thought it would be more of a "turn the knob" and it would disconnect the power. Simple to install, easy to use. These disconnects work as prescribed. Are made in the USA, and are very well priced. I will be purchasing more. Parts shipped out quickly and worked like a charm! Will be doing business with you folks again to be sure. Just received the item and it looks as describe, heavy duty. Great product and delivery was two days early Very reasonable price satisfied Great love it Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?
