Use a 3/8 Gland

Recently purchased 5 of the DIY kits. They work great. Save yourself a lot of hassle and use a 3/8" wire gland instead of the 1/4" gland supplied with the kit. It will not require you to cut of the terminals and solder new ones back on as suggested in the tutorial vidoeo.

Thank you for your purchase and taking time to leave a review and for your suggestions. The pg7 gland is the only one I found to have a really good watertight seal. All the sizes above it I found to be slightly loose. You really should check out our Elite kit. It's heads and shoulders above the one you bought.


Amazing company to work with. communicated and easy to talk to

DIY Battery Boxes are awesome!!

Bought 2 battery box kits for my Reveal cams. Here’s what I can say - the quality of the box and power cable components is top notch. Very easy to put everything together. Just watch Mike’s YouTube tutorial. Great value for the price! Can’t wait to get my cams out and not have to touch them for the whole year. And… no more buying single use AA’s. Thanks for a quality product at a great price! Will be buying more.

Thank you David. I really appreciate the feedback.
