Hey just wondering if you car experts have any knowledge of this. When I was a lot younger in my teens I bought a set of copper jumper cable adapters for jumping batteries with side post terminals. They were about 4 inches long. They had hollow copper tubing for the main part of the body and then flattened out into a fork or 2 prongs. You put the tube part down into the jumper cable connectors and then slide the fork part down onto the side terminal nipple. It made jumping a side post battery very easy and you always had a good connection. Anyway. Anyone know where you can get them or who makes them. I found some at truck/tow. Com but they look pretty cheesy. The ones i\I had were really sturdy and well made. Think I paid like 5 bucks for them in 1979. Any thoughts? Thanks in advanced. Ted.

Here is what I have found using jumper cables over the years.

I mean using jumper boxes over the years I dont really care for jumper cables. If you have the cable ends with larger teeth openings they work awesome on the side post batteries. If you use the small teeth cable ends they pop off.
