Load Lock® FASTener Marine & RV Battery Straps
Acid-proof. Rust-proof. Slip-proof.
Fits batteries and battery boxes up to 48" in girth
Made in USA from US materials
Most boat and RV batteries require replacement every 3-5 years. However, the vast majority of straps used to secure them don't typically last a year. Most are constructed of either acetal or nylon materials, neither of which is suitable for exposure to acids or battery fumes. Perhaps the improper material selection is to increase sales through frequent failure or it may simply be the result of poor engineering and using commodity items designed for other tasks. Shouldn't your battery straps last as long as the batteries they secure?
Our battery straps are designed to last the lifetime of a boat or RV battery (and beyond). In fact, when several regional managers from a leading national marine accessories retailer tried to carry the Load Lock Battery Strap in their stores, a corporate executive chose not to carry our battery straps because he saw value in, 'carrying a commodity strap with a short life that would result in customers making more frequent trips to the store to replace their battery straps with each trip resulting in purchases of additional items during the customer's visit to the store'. What he failed to realize is how annoying the frequent required replacement of battery straps is to most people. The next time you replace your battery strap, choose the only one that is designed to last the life of the battery.
Unlike competing battery box straps and battery tie down straps, the Load Lock® Marine Battery Strap will not loosen up over time and is simple to feed and adjust. Our battery strap fasteners are made of fiberglass-filled polypropylene, polypropylene strap material, and polypropylene thread to achieve battery holding strengths in excess of 300 pounds (the straight line breaking strength of 170 lbs approximately doubles when passed circumferentially around a battery or battery box). The all-polypropylene construction of our battery and battery box straps is virtually unaffected by long-term exposure to harsh battery acids. Avoid using competing battery hold down straps of nylon or acetal construction that deteriorate rapidly after exposure to battery acids (many other materials do not withstand the acids found in standard or gel cell batteries). Also available as a complete kit with a pair of polypropylene Footman's Loops and Stainless Steel mounting screws. Battery straps have convenient Finger Loop sewn in for easy tightening and transport of batteries. Note: Our battery straps are available in black only (shown in color above for illustrative purposes) and work with all 12-volt and 6-volt batteries less than 48" in girth. Strap width is one inch.
