FAQ: Can I leave the battery connector hand tight?
Answer: Yes. I have been riding on my set of prototypes with the connector sufficiently hand tight and rode in snow and rain. Make sure it is definitely tight but you don't need to tighten with a tool.
Why 4 bolts instead of 6?
I thought it might be an issue too but I have over 1000 miles with 4 and no issues. We have hundreds of customers with no issues. There are a couple load sources - weight of the battery and cyclic loading coming from vibration while riding. We aren’t talking a lot of load placed on the insert connection into the deck, at most the static load is 12.5 lbs per bolt with the total max being 50lbs from the battery ( at least a 2x factor of safety). I looked up the “pull strength” connection of a wood inert and Purdue University publishes a report stating that the amount of force required to pull the insert is about 900lbs... per insert. If you have a V3 deck, it is a stronger deck and there will be even higher resistance. So yes, 4 bolts is only needed both mathematical and also real-world testing back it up.
