6V House Batteries Clips

Anybody know where I can find the hold down clips for my house batteries? Never seen these before. The top of batter has tabs that stick up about an inch and the steel clip fits inside the tabs and cradles the end of the battery edge and then attaches to "J-bolt". Not on amazon or camping world or Autozone etc. These are golf cart batteries I assume.

I bought some on ebay a couple of years ago. Fleetwood parts had them also, but they were much more expensive.

Get some steel flat stock from Home Depot and bend it into a double "L". Slide one of the "L"s under the battery tab and let the other rest against the battery like the current one does. Buy some rubberized paint used for dipping tool handles and dip the new part.

I made mine from some scrap flat metal I had laying around the garage.

Navigator, What did you search on, I'm not having any luck finding them and the parts store link at Fleetwoodrv.com "rvparts.argrv.com" is fairly useless. Did you call them? What are they called? I need 8 each.

May have to try to manufacture them like Don and jm suggest when I find more time. Still working 40 hrs a week for another year or so.

Thanks for the replys

Look in "Golf Cart" web sites for the clips.

They are Fleetwood part number 090095. I just looked, and now Fleetwood has the best price of about $10 each (what a rip!). On ebay they are ranging from $10 to $18. I paid less than $5 two or three years ago. I thought about making them, but at $5 it wasn't worth the time. If you make them I'd suggest welding the angle piece on as it is a combo of a zee shape and an angle.

OK found them after I searched on the P/N. The Fleetwood website search function sucks. $9.30 each and I needed 8. $22 shipping. Outrageous.


Thanks Y'all for all your help.


Later
Dave
