I just spotted these and thought that they were pretty nifty, for our solderless friends.

they probably have been out for awhile, but I thought I would share anyways.
avalible in 3/8 or 1/2" sizes.

I can see those compression lugs coming in handy when moving the battery to the trunk.:tu

Hi keith, the compression with threads will work but they dont have the best contact to the conductor (not alot of pressure) or if there's much strain (a bend) near the lug they will pull apart. I use a T&B or Burndy crimp lug and just bring home from work one of our 12 ton Hypress tools. They can also be squeezed with dies in a bunch vise if you can't access a crimper.
