Default Battery clamp

For some reason this is missing. It didn't fail the MOT "not secure but unlikely to fall" was the quote. Nevertheless, it's bugging me.

Has anyone got one spare?

I've got the clamp, but good luck with fastening it with the new battery in place, so I bought a small ratchet strap.

New clamps are cheap as chips from the dealer. They are a perfect fit for a 096 battery.

Don't forget to fit a new security cord, so it doesn't get lost in the future.
