that when a battery terminal is gripped between

of lifting the battery even though the terminals
may vary as to size and may be quite tapered. .
Another-object of the invention is to provide
such a battery carrier which is very inexpensive
in construction and includes no parts which are
liable to wear and get out of order.

6. A storage battery carrier, comprising a strap
and a gripper at each end of said strap adapted to
fit over and grip one of the terminals of the
battery, each of said grippers including a strip
of metal directly secured to the corresponding
end of said strap, a jaw formed integrally with
said strip and extending outwardly and upward
