Battery bracket fabrication

4602 3
New battery but wanted more support than stock setup and industrial velcro on the bottom. I bought this long aluminum piece from Lowes for about 6 bucks. Used clamps to fold and bend the shape I wanted. Its on there pretty tight and I feel more secure that it won't go anywhere. I've read some horror stories of batteries coming off.

Cool! I can say this is a good idea, especially if you go to the track. My battery was attempting an escape at a track day and I fabricated basically the same thing when I got home. I added a hinge to help with battery removal, but works like yours.

Eventually will probably get a lighter battery and cut this down to work with it. At least for now, it is NOT going anywhere.
