Is there a better way than the straps? I keep breaking the plastic clasps

Dang, how often do you change/move your batteries?

I bought from Bass Cat because they had aluminum trays. They around 40 dollars a tray but if you only need straps go to Amazon and you can find battery straps with stainless buckles, 2 for under 10 dollars.


We have a sitting president who doesn't know how long he has been in office, and a former president that thinks he is still in office.

My Skeeter battery trays and Skeeter buckles are 17 yrs old and still functioning as new. Maybe you can buy some from Skeeter. [Linked Image]

Those look good, but I’d be sure to drill drain holes into each corner. Trust me, you don’t want an inch of stagnant water underneath each battery. It makes for a bad smell and a chore to clean.

cam straps, reminds me that I need to get some. 1" work good in the plastic mounts and about 3' I think is what I use.
