The E-Z-GO RXV Electric Battery Hold Down Rod is one of those parts that you cannot live without. We do not understand why someone would try to leave something off that secured a component as important as a battery. Think about how you use your car. Most of the time, it's on paved surfaces, right? There are all kinds of things used to hold that battery steadfast. Bars and screws and clamps, oh my! Now put that same line of thought to your golf cart. Where do you drive daily? Typically much rougher terrain than where you take an automobile.The argument could be made that you need battery hold downs more for your golf cart than for your car. We are not saying that you should sacrifice one for the other. Not that you would even dream of doing that to your sports car or truck. However, we feel that you should be concerned with your golf cart in the same way. This is more than a toy. Even if you just use it for pleasure cruising, the last thing you want to be is stranded. Especially when it is over something like a small part like this.This golf cart battery rod will work for the EZGO RXV models. This unit was produced beginning in 2008 and is still currently in production. If you happen to have your IPL handy, let's verify that the 602896 is the one you need.
