Booster Cables

If you cannot start your vehicle, you likely need booster cables to get up and running again. Booster cables — also called jumper cables — help a dead vehicle start its engine by connecting its battery to that of another car so it can draw the power it needs. Using booster cables lets you start your car and get it moving again, giving the alternator a chance to recharge your battery. 

Construction Fasteners and Tools has booster cables in our vast product inventory to help you stay prepared on the road.

How to Use Booster Cables

Jumping your car may be necessary if nothing happens when you turn the key. To jump-start your car, you will need booster cables and another vehicle with a battery voltage like your car's.

Here is how to start your car with booster cables:

  1. Position the working vehicle to face the dead car with a few inches in between. Pop the hoods and switch the engines off on both vehicles.
  2. Starting with the dead one, clamp the red cable so each end is attached to the positive battery terminals in both cars.
  3. Clamp one end of the black cable to the negative terminal in the working vehicle. Clamp the other end to any grounded metal component in the dead car except the battery.
  4. Confirm that the booster cables are in the correct positions to prevent any risk of malfunction. 
  5. Turn on the working vehicle and let it idle for at least one minute.
  6. Try to start the dead car. If the issue was related to the battery, you should be able to turn on the engine.
  7. Once both vehicles are running, disconnect the jumper cables in the opposite way you clamped them. Remove the black cable from the grounded metal first, the black cable from the working vehicle second, the red cable from the working vehicle third and the red cable from the dead car last.
  8. Let the dead car idle for 30 minutes or drive a short distance to recharge the battery.
