Default Pulling Caps on Batteries

Is there some kind of mini pry bar that works well for pulling the covers off a battery? I haven't done it in over 10 years but I remember it being a pain. I just read on the sticky that I need to check the water every two months.

I'm thinking there must be a curved screw driver out there or something.

Thanks

Tom

Correct. Check water, nuts, cables and clean batteries if needed every month.

From Scotty's page.....


ONCE A MONTH: Routine maintenance is the 2nd most important thing to insure you get the most use out of your new battery pack. It is critical that you get into a routine of spending 10 - 15 minutes a month to keep the cable connections clean and check the water levels. Proper water level is critical. Inadequate water levels is a big killer of batteries. Fill to the bottom of the fill hole well, Do not fill to the top. Overfilled batteries spill over under charge and damage the frame. Keep the Distilled Water level below the bottom of the fill hole sleeve or a half inch above the lead plates. Use a hard nylon or wire brush to remove any visible corrosion. Carefully check that all of the cable connections are tight. Loose connections cause arching which will melt the soft lead terminals. Spray-on Battery Terminal Protector greatly reduces corrosive build up. Always Wear rubber gloves and eye protection. I hope this helps you get the most use possible out of your battery investment.
