Our battery speed vent caps make watering and checking fluid levels in golf cart batteries or forklift batteries much easier! Allows speedy removal of all vent caps at the same time! To install it, turn the handle counterclockwise until it stops. Then insert it down into the battery vent holes, then twist the handle 1/4 turn clockwise until it tightens against the rubber seals. To remove it, simply twist the handle 1/4 turn counterclockwise and then lift it out.
The acid-proof seals help to prevent any leakage of the electrolyte. This helps to keep the top of your batteries dry. We have replacement speed vent caps to fit most batteries, including Crown, Interstate, US Battery, Rolls Surrette, Trojan, Tulip, Exide, and other batteries. We manufacture speed vents in various sizes to fit both 3-cell (6-volt) and 4-cell (8-volt) batteries. To determine which size you need, please measure your battery before ordering by following the instructions below.

Please be aware that some products advertised elsewhere as speed caps might be manufactured outside of the USA. Some of them may not contain a flame arrestor. This is an important feature since all lead-acid batteries emit hydrogen gas. Our speed vent caps contain flame arrestors and are safety tested and certified by an independent lab. Our battery speed vents are made in the USA in our Ohio factory.
No more lost vent caps! When battery vent caps are dropped, they always seem to bounce underneath something where they are hard to find and difficult to reach. Or worse, they fall into a narrow space and then disappear out of sight. The individual speed vent caps cannot be dropped because they are permanently attached to the assembly.
Patented design! The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has awarded patent no. 9,461,287 to our battery speed vent caps.
Please measure your battery before ordering. To determine whether you need a 3-cap or a 4-cap model, compare the number of vent caps on your battery with those in the chart shown above. Then measure the center-to-center distance between vent holes on your battery (see Fig. 1). Then select the Choose an option box above the Add to Cart button, and then select the correct model/distance in the drop-down list.
When measuring, keep in mind that the center to center distance of most batteries will vary slightly during the manufacturing process, perhaps as much as 1/32 inch. Our battery speed caps are designed to accommodate that small variation.

Our speed vent caps were designed using the latest engineering technology incorporated in our computer-aided design software. Each speed vent assembly is made up of multiple parts including the caps, flame arrestors, rubber washers, handles, and actuating arms. Every mechanical component was designed for maximum strength to ensure a long and troublefree life.
After our speed vent cap was designed, each part in the assembly then required the design of a separate mold. The one shown below is an 8-cavity tool that produces the speed caps for both the 3x and 4x models. It was designed in our engineering department by an engineer who has about 40 years of design experience. This tool was then manufactured in our machine shop by our experienced toolmakers using high-speed CNCs and other machinery. When the speed caps are scheduled for production, the mold is moved into our production area where it is mounted in one of our injection molding machines. The speed caps are produced at the rate of 8 in about 30 seconds or less.
