The extra screw terminal is attached to something I fabricated. I cut a rectangle shape with tin snips from 1/32" thick copper sheet and drilled two holes in it. One hole mounts it to the battery post clamp bolt and the other hole holds a screw for the extra terminal. If you prefer you could just use a crimp connector with a larger ring hole and put it directly on the clamp bolt.

Thank you. Crimp terminal is a good alternative. Your way is better.

I use a Battery Brain. No need to open the hood. It operates from a key fob and has a manual override.
