Avoiding unintended earthing

During some repairs I prefer to remove the battery earth connection from the gearbox and then let the terminal hang loose. To avoid the risk of unintended earth contact and risk shorting the diode board I attach a length of garden hose over the terminal to keep it insulated & out of harms way.
