Inspiration & Idea


Exposed components (shunt, battery terminals, breakers, etc.) in our campervan make us feel a bit uncomfortable due to the risk of short circuit. Here’s why…

Electrical-Short-Circuit-caused-by-Wrench-Shunt

Before installing the electrical system in our new van conversion, we are slowly working on designing and making enclosures and covers for the components we plan to use:

Victron-SmartShunt-Enclosure-CAD-Design

It’s still a work in progress at the time of writing these lines, but we’ll add more to our Store as we go… Here is what we have so far:


ABOUT THIS PRODUCT


Do It Yourself.

We couldn’t find a way to protect a shunt, so we made one.

This is an homemade product.

Each enclosure/cover is individually 3D printed, takes about an hour to complete, and requires manual labor. This is not a mass-produced product. This is a crafted, hand-made product.

Low Volume.

We created this product for our own needs, to make just a few units. There is no way for us to ramp up the production and lower the price, unless we take it to injection molding manufacturing but that’s a whole another level we’re not considering at the moment.

  1. The covers fits absolutely perfect. Good job. Everybody that have shunts should get these to eliminate the chance of something coming in contact with the terminals.

  2. Thank you for a well-designed and well-made shunt cover. It fits perfectly. It’s remarkable what you are able to craft with 3-D printing!

  3. The cover arrived 4 days earlier than expected and it fit just perfect. Like the blue color this time. You guys are awesome!!!!

    • Thank you!! 🙂

  4. It’s a simple enough piece of kit. But it’s designed well and it fits.
