How to fit a Pro Rider Golf Trolley Battery Lead
Most lead-acid batteries have either a cross screw style hex bolt and nut which go through the holes in the protruding battery terminal poles. These types of pole connections are more common on the smaller 18 hole batteries e.g. from 18Ah to 26Ah capacity. The other type of connection is a flat metal terminal built into the battery, it has a screw hole for a bolt to go into. This type of connector is more common with the 36 holes, (two golf rounds) 33Ah to 36Ah capacity. With the first type make sure the end of the battery lead red cable is connected to the positive RED terminal on the battery. Using the bolt put it through the RED lead hole while against the battery RED positive terminal then tightens the nut up until the lead can not move. Note: it is important to set the battery lead so it points down so as to run the cable without strain in the same direction of the cable to get plugged into the golf trolley. The larger battery is slightly easier as it is only one washer and bolt to get screwed down. Again watch the cable direction so as it does not point awkwardly out in case of damage.
