Battery jump point

OK so I came out to my 2.2 civic this morning after not starting the car at all since Friday night and its flat as a pancake, borrowed a set of jump leads from a neighbour but really couldn't get them onto the positive battery terminal took about 5mins to get a decent enough connection to start.

This got me thinking can I put in a decent jump point somewhere under the bonnet so I don't run into this problem again?

You jump by putting the red jumper lead on the + terminal on the battery and the black jumper lead on the engine spike.

Haha very funny, i work for a car auction centre I think I know how to jump start a car you missed the complete point I was making. I had trouble getting the positive lead to clip to anything as there its so many connections and mouldings in the way

You have to remove the red lid and clip on the end.

OMG. He knows where to clip. He's saying the positive lead is hard to clip a jump lead on to.
