Doesnt really matter you can get some at walmart, parts store, etc that do the same job. There are cool ones out there that are rubber on the top bracket that cut down on the corrosion on top of the battery in theory.

As Shawn said, doesn't really matter. Just be sure that they are of good quality. And just for reference, I always carry a wormscrew type heaterhose clamp in my toolbox. Makes for a quick and easy fix for a broken/bad battery clamp. Atleast for the top post types. Just cut of the offending clamp, bare some wire, and clamp it to the post. Saved me a walk home a few times...........Tom

Ok I didnt realize you weren't talking about the battery hold down bracket.

Same answer as above I suppose but I tend to replace the cables instead of re-doing the end. The cables are usually like 5 bucks.
