Video Transcript for Deka Accessories and Parts DW05312 Review

Today we're going to review part number DW05312. This is the Deka lead quick-disconnect battery terminal. This lead quick-disconnect battery terminal will fit both negative and positive posts on the top-post batteries. It is designed to be used in passenger cars, light duty trucks, farm equipment, marine applications, and even RTRVs and ATVs. It is designed to fit the top-post batteries. It has universal polarities, so it allows use on both negative and positive posts. It is made of a lead construction, so it enables maximum electrical conduction.

It will easily detach from the battery to prevent theft and electrical drain. This part is made in the USA. Just to give you an overall length of this item, up 3.5 inches in length. Just to show you how this would operate, you have this plastic thumb screw; just unscrew it. Once it get it fully unscrewed, you can see this part will disconnect and you can see basically what you do is right here on this part, you can see the clamp sort of onion 00:01:11. This is what you would clamp to your cable connection. This part you can see has the hole.

This is what would go on the top post of the battery. This would stay on the battery. What you would do is just put the cable connected to it, put your thumb wheel on there, tighten it down, and it gives you a good lead-to-lead connection. This is also a handy item to use. We sell a lot of them for people when they do some flat towings. On certain vehicles the battery has to be disconnected when flat towing.

This makes a simple connection to where you just unscrew when you;'re going to flat tow your vehicle. It makes it easy to connect and disconnect. That should do it for the review on part number DW05312, the Deka lead quick-disconnect battery terminal. .

I bought two of them and the first one broke in about 4 month. So have the second one on now so far so good. But I would like to say thank you for checking up on the product I bought. Because I am from Canada and cost me a lot of money. Thank’s again. 474931

The price is excellent. The material is durable. My nit-picky gripe is that the black knob must be loosened and then one entire half of the terminal must be removed. Other products - which, yes, cost a few bucks more - disconnect with just a quarter-turn of the knob. This disconnect is better suited for occasional rather than daily use. It's lead, not steel, so it won't rust. 363674

by:


Somewhat of a pain to unhook the two pieces to disconnect the power. Thought it would be more of a "turn the knob" and it would disconnect the power. 224190

  • Flat-Towing Setup for a 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2
  • Before you purchase the necessary components needed to flat-tow your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 behind your 2014 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 36LA you will want to review the "Recreational Towing" section of your owner's manual for any special clauses. In order to flat-tow your Colorado you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, supplemental braking system, safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a possible high-low adapter. The only base plate kit we have for your Colorado with the ZR2 package...

  • Why Must the Negative Battery Cable Be Disconnected on a Jeep Wrangler to Flat Tow
  • Jeep recommends disconnecting the negative battery cable when flat towing to prevent the battery from draining. When you flat tow your Wrangler, the ignition must be left in the ACC position. This would leave certain electronic components on that could drain the battery. For your situation, I recommend installing the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect, # RM-766, on the positive battery cable so you don't lose your ground to the chassis. I know the owners manual says negative cable,...

  • Recommended Way To Power An Electric Winch For Boat Trailer
  • There are a few ways you can wire the winch. The first is to wire it with some quick-disconnects like part # DW05312 to your vehicle battery. Your battery should have at least 440 cranking amps to be able to handle the winch power. The second is to install a winch wiring kit like part # SW2008. One wiring cable attaches to your Tacoma battery. Then you attach the other wiring cable to your winch. These cables have connectors that make attaching the winch really simple when power is...

  • Recommendations When Flat-Towing 2014 Ford Focus With Automatic Transmission
  • There are 5 main items you need when you are planning on flat-towing your 2014 Ford Focus. You will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting on the vehicle, and most states now require supplemental brake systems. For your Focus I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plates, part # RM-524430-5. When you are not towing your Focus and you remove the front arms, the system is nearly invisible. The tow bar I recommend is the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520. This tow...

  • Complete Flat Towing Setup for a 4 Wheel Drive 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • If your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the 2 wheel drive model then the vehicle cannot be towed with all four wheels down as this would likely cause damage to the vehicle's driveline components. The only way to flat tow a 2 wheel drive model is with a tow dolly. Unfortunately, we do not have a tow dolly that is compatible with your truck at this time. If you have a 4 wheel drive model then the vehicle can be flat towed with all four wheels down. In order to do this you will need a...

  • Recommended Parts to Flat Tow a 2017 Ford Edge Titanium
  • Yes, disconnecting the battery with a Quick-Disconnect, like the Deka part # DW05312, will be the easy way to go when it comes to disconnecting the battery on your 2017 Ford Edge so it can be flat towed. Disconnecting the battery prevents it from draining while you are flat towing. Since the owner's manual states that the battery must be disconnected I strongly recommend following those instructions and not trying to get by it somehow. That is one of the down sides to flat towing with...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Ford Fiesta
  • I did some checking and it looks like the battery of a 2014 Ford Fiesta would need to be disconnected if the vehicle had an automatic transmission but if you have a manual it would not be required. To make disconnecting the battery easy we have the part # DW05312 which will allow you to disconnect the battery without needing any tools. For a base plate kit you would want the part # RM-524438-4 for if you do not have the EcoBoost engine or part # RM-524441-4 if you do. In addition...

  • Battery Disconnect Solution for Flat Towing a 2015 GMC Yukon Denali XL
  • Instead of having to disconnect the negative battery terminal every time you flat tow your 2015 GMC Yukon Denali you could just use a # DW05312 to make the process simpler. No tools or anything would be needed to disconnect the battery, I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you need a base plate kit you would want part # BX1716 for if you don't have adaptive cruise control or part # BX1718 for if you do. I also attached an FAQ on flat towing for you to check...

  • Can a 2008 Jeep Wrangler be flat Towed Behind a Motor Home Using HighRock Bumper
  • The Bestop HighRock bumper # B4491001 is not designed to be used to flat tow the vehicle. There are some aftermarket bumpers that do have this ability but we do not carry them. For example if you had a Smittybilt XRC Atlas bumper you could use a Blue Ox adapter # BX88304 to connect a tow bar. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Alpha, # BX7365. It is rated for 6,500 pounds and comes with safety cables. For lighting I recommend the bulb and socket kit # RM-155. Check your owners...

  • Blue Ox Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2016 Ford Focus
  • For your 2016 Ford Focus the correct base plate kit is the part # BX2663 which is a confirmed fit for yours that is built in 2015. You didn't say what tow bar you have but this will work with Blue Ox tow bars. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector...

  • Do Fuses Need to be Pulled to Flat Tow a 2015 Jeep Wrangler
  • Actually you don't have to pull any fuses to flat tow your 2015 Jeep Wrangler. According to the research I did you will need to disconnect the battery of your vehicle to flat tow, but none of the fuses will need to get pulled. For an easy way to disconnect the battery you could use the # DW05312. Check out the install video for more info. I also attached an FAQ on flat towing for you to check out as well.

  • Why Can't the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect be Used on a Diesel Engine
  • I spoke to my contact at Roadmaster and they informed me that Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect with Switch part # RM-766 cannot be used on vehicles with a diesel engine because these vehicles require a battery with a very high cold cranking amp (CCA) rating which would fry the solenoid on the battery disconnect. Instead, you will want to use something like the Deka Lead Quick-Disconnect Battery Terminal part # DW05312 which allows you to disconnect the battery leads though the use...

  • Battery Disconnect for Flat Towing 2016 Ford Edge
  • It's not ideal for that as it's designed to charge the circuit it is installed on so it wouldn't work. A great option would then be the part # DW05312 which you would install on the negative battery post and it would give you an easy way to disconnect the circuit.

  • Instead of Brake Light Relay for Flat Towing Could Vehicle Battery Be Disconnected
  • If you wanted to kill the power to your vehicle battery so that it wouldn't activate the brake lights when the supplemental braking system presses the brakes that would be one option. To power the supplemental braking system you could then use the part # RM-9332 for an outlet kit. You could use the # DW05312 as a battery disconnect.

  • Correct Way to Connect a Breakaway Battery and Winch Battery to 12V Power on Trailer 7-Way
  • A diode like the part # RM-690 is a great idea but the only issue is that is has a max load of 85 amps. A standard 5,000 lb winch, like the Superwinch S5000 # SW104176, will greatly exceed the 85 amp rating of the diode so it would be useless. What you will want to do is install a battery disconnect like part # BDW20247 (400 amps max), part # BDW20248 (500 amps), or part # DW05312 which completely disconnects them. You can then reconnect the batteries once you are connected to your tow...

  • Parts Needed to Flat-Tow a 2016 Ford Focus
  • In order to flat-tow a 2016 Ford Focus with all four wheels on the ground you are going to need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, supplemental braking system, wiring harness, and possible high-low adapter. Before getting started, I highly recommend taking a look in the owner's manual for any specific procedures that must be done while in tow. For a base plate kit, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit part # RM-524443-5 as long as you do not have adaptive cruise control....

  • On porch light # RVPL7C the white wire is the ground and will need to attach to a clean metal surface. The black wire is the power wire. You can use some automotive wire to go from the light to the battery. Once at the battery you could use something like the battery terminal # DW05312. There are a couple of studs on this terminal and you could place a ring terminal on the end of the wire, remove a stud, then put the wire over the stud and thread it back into place.

In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground.
