Default "The-Timer" question.

Does it use F1 or F2 terminals ? Asking for a friend. I can't find anywhere that info is listed. And who actually makes "the-timer" ?

Thanks, D.

Uses the smaller terminals, which are generic. They are out of SA. I think All Seasons does

It’s the difference in size of the terminal posts on the battery and connectors.

I’ve never paid attention to what size mine are but if I had to guess I think they’re a 2.
Either way there are adapters if need be.

And really, w/only 1/16" difference, I'm sure I could make either work.

Any of their retailers… J&L Sales, in the Cross Plains case, can warranty them.

All I run is THE TIMER! I have had one issue. They mailed me a new one brand new

Not sure what the $10 credit is your referring to

You can use any terminal you want. Just splice the end and you can switch terminals. Easy fix

I don't know anything about 'the timer' unfortunately, but know terminals.

You have three basic quick disconnect / fast on's.

.110 Never seen any of these small guys on feeder applications.

.187 The most common with feeders & all our 12v batts are this size. There are also two thicknesses .02 & .032 with .02 being the most common (i think on batts) & can always force it over a a larger tab.

.250 I'm sure with all the available feeders out there some have these larger ones in their internals...don't recall ever having .250 tabs on any of our batts over the years??

Walk into a dealer and present a timer over a year old and you’ll get $10.

I have had three fail me now. Latest one just recently. First two I am pretty sure we’re caught up in the bad run they had that wouldn’t keep time.

This last one started getting wonky the last couple months on time, and just flat out quit working. I hadn’t seen that yet.

I don’t know how old it was, but I know it was over a year old. Luckily I had one in reserve that I changed it out with.

They kind of have the market cornered since HCR went out of business. I guess
They are following the American dream, do less and charge more.

The female terminal on THE-TIMER harness is 1/4" (.250) F2

An F2 terminal fits over the common F1 (.187) deer feeder battery terminal.

There are a few F2 terminal batteries out in the feeder world but most are F1.

The-Timer harness fits both F1 and F2 battery terminals!

Are you sure about that? They have a 5 year warranty so if you send one in that is only 1 year old you should get a new one/no charge.
