Nut for the battery
Sometimes when removing the battery from the ski the nut would fall out and disappear in the hull.
Got tired of losing my nuts. So I tightened it down and got some of that glue that comes in 2 parts that looks and feels like clay. Then I smashed it in all around the nut. After about 5 min. I ran the bolt in and out to make sure it wouldn't get stuck. Now I can roll it across the lawn like a bowling ball and it isn't going any where!

good move. I've always used a drop of loctite, its also keeps the square nut in place from sliding out. Thanks for sharing Hoover

I just screw the bolt back in before i move the battery, and usually i put some of the clear tube that comes with the battery if they have the short nuts

use a deak agm battery and never worry about that $%$$%^$^$^$ nut again. the terminal is the size of a sherman tank and has threaded inserts for top and side mounting. makes it a simple matter to add a pigtail for charging ( not the deka ever needs that). A helluva battery for what a lead acid model would cost you. OEm for a couple of the major auto parts chains, but you can always recognize them by the unique terminals.

What I did is use some 1 inch heat shrink tubing. Cut a piece about 1/2 inch tall. Place it over the post on the battery, of course with the nut in there and use a heat gun. The nut will be able to happily float in there and will not fall out.
