Hi ,
I bought a new battery 48v 17ah it has no instructions , its the same as this
can someone please tell me how to detach the mounting bracket? I see where the key is it shows an unlock icon, but when i turn it clockwise it wont stay in place it keeps going back to the unlock position,

Stuart frustrated :-|

I have the exact same.

Is your bracket fixed to the frame yet or on just the bottom of the battery?

Either way hold the key in the unlock position, (it doesn`t stay there its spring loaded) and slide the battery back up, you` will have to be very forceful with this.
In fact it may take two people to do this as you run out of hands!

Thanks Tommie, got the plate to come apart from the battery now, and its a good fit for my water bottle bolts....I`ve never used one before had a rack battery previously, not had a battery for my ebike for 2 wks, dying to use it, work to finish first though !
