Our battery speed vent cap makes watering and checking fluid levels in golf cart or forklift batteries much easier! Instantly remove or install all vent caps at the same time! To install it, first turn the handle counterclockwise until it stops. Then insert it downward into the battery vent holes and then twist the handle one-quarter turn clockwise until it tightens against the rubber seals. To remove it, twist the handle one-quarter turn counterclockwise and lift it out.
The acid-proof seals prevent any leakage or spills of the electrolyte. We have replacement speed vent caps to fit most batteries, including Trojan, US Battery, Rolls Surrette, Exide, Crown, and others. We manufacture speed vents in various sizes to fit both 3-cell (6-volt) and 4-cell (8 volt) batteries. The most common size for each battery manufacturer is shown in the chart below.Battery Speed Vent Caps Chart

Be aware that some products advertised elsewhere as speed caps may be manufactured outside of the USA. Some of them may not contain a flame arrestor which is an important feature since all lead-acid batteries emit flammable hydrogen gas. Our battery speed vents are manufactured in the USA in our factory in Ohio. Not only do they contain flame arrestors, but they have been safety tested and certified by an independent lab.
No more lost vent caps… Dropped vent caps always seem to bounce underneath something where they are hard to find. Or worse, they fall into a narrow space and disappear out of sight. Our speed vent caps solve this problem, since the individual caps are permanently attached to the actuating arms.
Patented design… Our battery speed vent cap has been awarded patent no. 9,461,287 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The chart shown above is for general reference only, and should not be relied on when determining which model you need. Please measure your battery before ordering. To determine which model you need, measure the center-to-center distance between vent holes on your battery (see Fig. 1). Then click on the “Choose an option” box above the “Add to Cart” button, then select the correct model/distance in the drop-down list.
When measuring, keep in mind that the center to center distance of any battery cover can and will vary slightly during the manufacturing process, perhaps as much as 1/32 inch. Our speed vent caps are designed to accommodate that small variation.
