Works great in Deering Crossfire banjos -

I was tired of having to unscrew a back panel to change 9V batteries. I bought & installed this box without difficulty. I had to cut the bottom off the box to allow it to fit in the tight space available - it works great. Battery changes are a BREEZE now.

Just right for the job

Very easy to install, very useful box for my old Jackson SL1 electric guitar's 9 volt battery changing. I don't need to unscrew the knobs plate to replace my battery every time. I drilled a proper hole in my knobs plate for this box, and installed the box into the hole. Done, and done!

used for ghost saddles and preamp

Built 2 teles using ghost saddles preamp and quick switch. Finally added battery box as it was a pain to need a screwdriver to change the batteries. Found this battery box a little difficult to open.

Makes Changing Batteries Fast

I have used a few of these and I haven't had the problems like some have mentioned. I do see that you have to be careful which way you install the battery.
