Q
Hi It says this bracket will convert top post terminals style cables to side terminal adapters on battery. The picture realy does not show this hardware. So could you explain how the top post cables would connect to a sidepost batteries? And is additional hardware be needed? Ty Jim

Sorry for the late response. This converts the other way around. Top to side. If you have a gm car, which I am assuming, you will be ordering a CS power battery for that make. CS power barriers are all top post. This adapter changes them from top post to side post.
[ Marcus  Jun 19, 2019 ]
A
It only works with the xs batteries. They bolt down with a 6mm bolt on top and allows for a post or bolt to be put on the front side of the battery or the oppsite side of the battery. You will need a bolt/post for the lower terminal. I dont know the size though. I used these because i was hooking up 4 ring terminals. 2 on top and 2 on the side
[ robert  Jun 18, 2019 ]
A
The brackets shown screw down to the top post position. Then it converts to GM battery connections. If you want to retain the top post also you will need to buy the brass posts also. You need to buy the brass top posts anyways since the batteries dont come with ant posts just Allen screws. I wish I could post a pic for you. Hope this helps
[ Brian  Jun 18, 2019 ]
A
Everything you need is included. It works perfect.
[ Jeremy  Jun 18, 2019 ]
Q
What metal are these battery adapters are made of? Lead? Chrome plated brass or steel? I want to use these on an agm Full Throttle battery that has screwed on top brass lug terminals but I need gm side terminals, is this what they're designed for? Thank you.

To my knowledge they are lead but you might want to confirm with XS Power. This is exactly why they are designed for, for use as side posts for GM vehicles. I actually have a pair of these on one of my XS 5100'a, although not exactly used for this purpose, it works the same none the less. So they can be used for multiple applications.
[ Andrew  Dec 03, 2018 ]
A
Yes they will do what you are wanting them for. They convert top to side or side to top. I am not sure about material in which they are made but they work great.
[ MICHAEL  Dec 03, 2018 ]
Q
how exactly does this work do you use the side mount locations for the regular vehicle cables and then the top for accessories?
[ peter  Apr 26, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
You can use it either way, whatever is more convenient for your application.
[ Rafael  Apr 27, 2015 ]
A
No, it just converts top post side post. You cannot use both post the top and the side at the same time. I sent mine back because of this reason and got a optima yellow top to use both post at the same time.
