We used a stick of 2x1⁄2-inch 6061 aluminum to make a battery hold-down on our dual battery box. The stick of aluminum was about $2 at our local metal supply store, and it will also hold some of the winch and battery cables. We will tap the aluminum and use stainless steel clamps to hold the wires in place.
