A system for facilitating the installation of a storage battery of the general lead acid type in a vehicle and its removal therefrom is disclosed. In one embodiment designed to accommodate side-mounted battery terminals, a rigid case mounted to the vehicle includes a pair of adjustable connectors secured to an upper portion of a lateral wall thereof. Each connector is coupled to a respective positive or negative lead of the vehicle and is adapted to securely engage a cylindrical post threadably engaged in each of the side-mounted battery terminals. The battery may be lowered into or removed from the case by means of a conventional strap positioned thereon with a tight-fitting relationship established between the case and the battery so as to insure a stable battery installation. The connectors may be manually adjusted to securely engage a respective post or to permit the easy removal of the battery from the case. The connectors are variably positioned on a lateral wall of the battery case to accommodate various battery inter-terminal dimensions.
