Six Volt Battery Hold Down Clamps
I just replaced the tiny Interstate 12 V house battery with two 6 V Crown batteries. I'm looking for two hold down clamps for 7" wide batteries. They must go across the narrow diameter of the battery. I could probably fabricate something but I'd like them to clamp the sides of the battery, not tighten against the vent and filler caps. Like the first picture shows I need two clamps, left to right on each, sort of like the second picture but about an inch or so wider.
I'm sure I could use my vice and a handheld sledge to beat a piece of metal to fit, but if I can find a few brackets that fit for a nominal sum, 10$,$20,$30 whatever....I'd do that first. The 3/8" threaded hold down rod and associated nuts and washers are no big deal. Too much mass in the event of an accident. I need/want something solid.
