We are very particular about how these go together because we see so many broken and cracked weld battery hold downs, and most of the broken ones weren't cheap either. The real problem we have found with the easily broken ones was multiple welds on too thin material, some are only 20 gauge. They simply can't take the vibration.

  • The inside dimensions for each battery location is measured at the base and is made to accomodate the dimensions of the base of the Optima battery which is as follows: L: 9.75" W: 7.20" H:6.63" 
  • Optima measures their batteries at the top/cap and are as follows: L:10.06" W: 6.94" H: 7.88"  (The length of the cap is larger than our box and will stick out past the edges of the box slightly. Optima includes terminals in their height measurement)
  • The outside dimensions of this box are ~L: 16.6" W: 10 1/8" H: 6.85"
We followed the form of our single battery boxes and made these with very close tolerances so they didn't have to be too thick of material because if it fits well it won't be bouncing around. So we use 12 gauge (about 1/10" thick) and MIG the center tab, that should avoid the vibration cracks around the welds the rest are so famous for. Here is the side by side widthwise.

Each battery has a hold down in the shape of the newer battery top (if you have an older Optimas they will still fit). We do not pre-drill any holes for mounting because you will want to mount them for YOUR vehicle and not have to work around someone else's idea of what is right. They can be bolted or welded in but remember that batteries are heavy.

Very impressed with the quality of this box. Material is a little lighter than I had envisioned, but when mounted with the batteries installed, is very rigid. That's the mark of good engineering: just heavy enough to be strong, with no unnecessary bulk or weight. As always, shipping was lightning fast as well.
