90 degree Lugs

I'm looking for some 90 degree lugs for 4/0 and 3/0 cables. I have found some, but the 90 is in the vertical plane, not horizontal. Does anyone know of a source for tinned (marine) Lugs in NA?

I need:

Re: 90 degree Lugs

Is this what you are looking for?


Located here...
Battery Terminal Flag Copper Tinned - Positive 3/0 AWG

That's called a "flag" connector. I did a search for "flag battery connector" and that just happens to be the first one that came up.

Re: 90 degree Lugs

denverd0n,

Thanks!

Your image is the right idea, but not exactly. I prefer the flat connectors because they are much more secure (especially as this is up in the bow with lots of motion).

Looking for "flag battery lugs" did get me to almost what I want (Quick Cable: MagnaLug Elbow Lugs) :



The only problem is that my wires are 4/0 and 3/0 and I'm connecting to a battery with M8 (5/16") posts. The lug from Quick Cable: seems to only be available in 3/8".
