Default What is the proper torque for battery hold downs?

Installing 8 volt Trojans in a 2009 Precedent with the T shaped holddowns. Is there a particular torque for the hold down bolts? I don't want them moving around and I don't want to crush the batteries.

Are you sure it's not 10 ft lbs? 10 in lbs isn't much torque at all...

Not Club Car, but the Yamaha Drive manual has the following specs:

Battery hold downs: 62-80 in/lb
Battery cables/terminals: 80-89 in/lb
