Never failed a test.

You CAN NOT damage fork truck pins & springs in them.
For those that have never seen a electric fork lift battery connector, these things mean business. They are huge, and have very beefy contacts. Some of those we had at work used 1/0 wire or heavier for battery cables. Those cables connected with the Anderson Power Pole connectors, or similar units from other suppliers.

Retired and the days are just too short, busier than ever!
