Abstract (en)

A device (1) for locking a battery clamp (2), which is substantially in the form of an open ring, by moving the free ends (5, 6) of the clamp (2) together, comprises a pressing element (7) and an abutment surface (20) which is abutted by a first free end (5) of the clamp (2), which end is pushed, in a first direction (X-X), by the other free end under the action of the pressing element (7). Advantageously, the pressing element (7) acts as a wedge which can be operated from above in a second direction (Y-Y), substantially at right-angles to the direction (X-X), in order to cause the two free ends (5, 6) of the clamp (2) to move together and therefore to bring about the locking of the clamp. <IMAGE>
