    Thumbs up 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.
