I picked up a couple of these to use in my car rewire. I know its a simple product but nobody else seems to be offering anything similar.

For something that is functional and only cost $10, I thought they did quite well. Stainless construction and the long threads on both sides are nice. The large base cover also ensures plenty of surface area for the terminal.

I'm going to use one in my trunk, at the rear mounted battery. I'll use other on the firewall as a junction between my engine grounds, body, and newly mounted electronics under the dash.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

I've got a firewall bulkhead. I wanted something that would allow me attach multiple terminals on both sides and make a good connection to the sheet metal.

I've been using a bolt with star washers for years with any issues. It's just a pain when you have to undo something.

Good idea, I like all kinds of wiring tricks, supplies, nick knacks etc.

I've been buying supplies/pieces to build a nice set of jumper cables(2ga welding wire is down to $31 for 25'(red or black(I paid extra for blue))).

I just sourced the heat shrink material from Ancor, through Amazon. Theirs has adhesive inside(marine grade), and with careful size/color/length selection(PITA for each choice), you can get decent pricing. I bought 48" sections of about five sizes, and (3) 12" pieces of 1" black to hold the 2ga welding cable together.

I see also that they have tinned wire, which is marine grade, for best uses outside like under hood etc. I didn't buy any of that yet. Soon though, and it's often much cheaper in bulk rolls.

The jumper cable clamps I wanted are back ordered, they only had one pair(red seems to be unavailable at the moment). I chose blue for my power lead, I wanted something different, plus a quick connect(winch connector etc). I'll make two half pieces, 10' and 15' long, we'll see if that's worth the $125ish it's going to cost. Regards,

Thanks for the link.  I'm going to pick a couple up as well.   Thanx!

I installed one of these on my truck the other day and noticed something that I missed the first time.

The nuts aren't stainless, they are nickel plated brass.

Not that its a real problem, I just didn't realize it until I stripped one of them with my impact.

I think that they were M8X1.25.
