Default WTB Battery Hold Down Nut

Just like the title says, looking for the nut that goes on the battery hold down bolt. My car had it's misplaced somewhere along the line.

I'd be willing to do $5 shipped for it.

I guess I needed a noob thread eventually didn't I? I'll go snag a bunch from ACE next time I'm down there and try them out.

I THINK it is an M6 1.25, but I could be wrong. It is the same as all over the car. Take one off of the trunk hinges and take that with you as it is the same size.

Pretty sure it will be an 8mm. If it is the same (roughly) size as a 1/4" bolt, it's 6mm. If it looks like a 5/16" it is an 8mm. Or, take the rod with you.

It takes a 10mm socket, so it's a 6mm nut. Most likely 6x1.0.
