Mine were short so that is what I needed!
S. Greene
This short bolt battery extender worked perfect with my side connection battery.
Chris Harrell
This was a little too short to get a good grip on my side post battery.

This was a little too short to get a good grip on my side post battery. I did not use it.

Perhaps my GM truck is unique is some way, but the threads for the battery aren't long enough to engage properly, and on the positive terminal only go in 1 thread before it starts to tighten, and of course will strip that one thread pretty quickly. I've inspected the cables and battery and there's nothing extra in there blocking it from working properly, the original battery bolts are about 3 threads longer and tighten up just fine, but these (and others I've used) fall short.

If you were using these to make a connection to a side post battery without battery cables, they would work fine, so if you're using them on a coach battery and they aren't holding a large battery cable, they would work fine, which is perhaps how they were intended to be used (except that they do appear to have been designed to fit the battery cables).

I purchased two of these for a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado. One of them worked just fine. The other one had damaged threads and would not tighten. I had to put the factory nut back in. I am returning the defective one and getting a replacement. From what I see this set is the best you can get for the money. If you have issues with it not working check to see if the threads are damaged. Also another thing to note is this "short" one is exactly the same length as the GM factory nut so it should fit. You do need to press it into the rubber boot or the threads do not reach the battery. I received the replacement (Thanks Amazon!! and it fit perfectly. Note you must press the nut onto the boot or it will not work.

I tried using this on a 2004 Tahoe with no luck. I couldn't get it to tighten. GMs have the thick rubber terminal cover the bolt has to go through before it can go into the battery. I ordered the long version and it was a snap to put on. Very heavy duty. Perfect for adding a 4 gauge power wire for my amp.

This is too Short for a positive GM Truck on a side mount battery terminal. After stripping the factory plastic off it fit and worked fine for several months, but the nut started to rust apparently the gold plate does not holdup to tightening the connecters of an amp.

Initially this battery extender was too long to fit the side of my Exide AGM deep cycle starter battery 78DTXCD until I sandwiched the ring ends of my solder lug and charger / maintainer terminal between the extender and battery. I like this configuration better. This battery extender terminal has such nice gold plating I just didn't want to give it up. This and its negative counterpart serves its purpose well.

The design is OK, and worked fine on a side mount battery in a 1996 Malibu. But after only 4 months the terminal nut is starting to corrode and showing slight rust.

It was a little too long for me to use on my vehicle. It almost touches the fender on my Pontiac Firebird and that would be a disaster if my positive terminal were to ground there.
