East Penn Announces the Release of OEM-Style “Exact Fit” Battery Cables

East Penn Manufacturing recently introduced 20 new OEM-Style “Exact Fit” battery cables with quality construction and superior performance. These cables eliminate the need for cutting, stripping, and crimping and are ready to install straight from the package. The “Exact Fit” cables are modeled after the original design to meet and exceed O.E. requirements. They feature terminal caps, cable loom and leads when specified by the O.E. Manufacturer. Without increasing wire gauge, the cables contain more copper strands to allow for greater flexibility and more starting power.

East Penn also introduces a new OEM-Style Exact Fit and Standard Replacement Battery Cable Application Guide. This is the most comprehensive application guide in the industry. In addition to battery cable applications, replacement terminals are listed including an O.E. style top post replacement terminal. The application guide will soon be available electronically through MacDonald, CCI/Triad, and Profit Pro.

The industry’s most comprehensive wire and cable supplier, Deka offers a 96% coverage rate on vehicles between 1981 and 1995. Additional types and sizes will be added as vehicles enter the replacement market. With East Penn’s new “Exact Fit” battery cables and expanded application guide dealers can be confident in providing their customers with the proper cable.
