The bolt length was 12 inches when I used to use it, oh so long ago! My experience with them was excellent when I used them in a tractor battery.

The originals rusted and I wanted to replace them. As difficult as it may seem, removing the old bolts was the hardest part. They would not unscrew, and the shaft snapped. (I had to pull out 3 of the 6 batteries, and it is a tight fit) I did not have any problems installing the new ones. With the batteries in place and the rubber washer in place, I positioned the bolts at a distance approximately correct for the batteries. Finally, I lowered the battery hold down bracket in to place with the bolts hanging down and A little wiggling, and the hooks were inserted into the hole and the wing nuts were tightened.
This replacement battery tie down for a 2007 Club Car DS 48v will do the job equally well. I ordered 4 packs to make sure the job gets The battery mounting system for my particular application uses (4) 12v batteries mounted differently than the 6 battery setup. Plastic braces act as corners for the batteries and these metal hooks are used to secure them. adequate threading to use the rubber bushing provided, while I added a fender washer and nylock nuts. The wing nuts provided do not bind up in mounting corners of the plastic supports, but may bind slightly in some instances. We found this product to be an effective and low-cost replacement for the OEM tie down.
I put the hold-down on the battery when I was changing it The radiator is held down by the bottom bolt. In spite of my best efforts, it slipped into a crevice in front of the radiator, and I couldn't get hold of it. I've tried taking off the cover that covers the bottom of the engine, but I'm still unable to I could hear it inside the hole when I probated it with a screwdriver, but a magnet didn't work. I just gave up, so I went to get a new one, but the OEM replacement is so expensive that I couldn't afford it. There were no problems with this baby. My first concern was that the bolt might puncture the hood because it sticks up about an inch too high. It wasn't faulty, but I checked first before slamming it. Maybe one day I'll come by with an angle grinder and cut it off. It is not stainless, so it may rust with time, but it does the job at a reasonable.
What are some ways you mess up threaded rods? There is no thread on the wing nuts. The threaded rod does not have threads I tried using regular nuts, but the nuts' threads will not When pressure is applied to the threads, they just peel off and fall out.
I read another review that the "wing nuts" may loosen up over time. The "wing nuts" that come with this product are of poor quality. I read another review in which the screws are called rubbish. As for the mounts, I tightened them pretty tight as well because they looked fine to me and have been working just fine.
These wing nuts seem to be made of cheap pot metal, and the rubber spacers aren't helpful either. They are extremely soft and start to spread apart as soon as you begin to tighten them. It'd be good if you were buying it just for the rods and wing nuts, but if you needed the spacers and nuts then I would suggest finding.
It didn't seem to cause any problems so I put them on the shelf and told the mechanics. After a week, one of my mechanics comes to me and tells me to throw them away. It makes me laugh because I had no idea how a threaded rod and nut can be messed up. Even so, there is barely enough thread on the wing nuts to use them. Almost as if it's just a hole drilled out of a rock. It is at least possible for us to.
The new hold downs worked well in replacing the missing ones It was a little short, but that's to be expected, considering it was down on the wife's Pontiac Vibe.
