I finally found a great protector for portable Battery Boost cables:

I cut a short length of an old bike inner tube and slip it over the clips.



Now most modern jumper cables are plastic with embedded copper teeth to
provent inadvertent shorts, but they are so big and bulky and wont even get
to the posts on a Prius.

I jump start from smaller batteries with much smaller clips.  But still the
clips can short when they flail about in the trunkā€¦



This solves it.
