Vertex DryCell V1220HD comes with 16mm (cable size) lugs to be crimped onto the battery cable. This design is used in many racing applications and GM vehicles to replace the side post design.

If your vehicle cables are fitted with lugs, in most applications they will bolt directly to the battery with the bolts and washers supplied. This style is designed to work with motorcycles and personal watercraft that have the terminals with 6mm holes or larger, attached to the factory battery cable.
