They aren't loaded to his web site yet but at least you have a solid contact option.



Fil was the original designer & current distributor and Guy got involved with some way with production is what I have been able to gather.

Here's a pic of the hold downs painted. They come with some rubber isolator pads to protect your cables from making contact with the hold down. Everything is sturdy and well built.

Depending on your battery dimensions - you might max out the threads on the factory J hooks trying to tighten the batteries down. I solved it on mine with some foam tape between the battery and hold down bracket.

Looking good!

perfect. I just sent them an email requesting to purchase. I was trying to figure out if I was going to purchase another one of those janky hold downs you see on KW.
