Default How do you secure your battery in the bagwell?

So I've decided to go with an additional battery in the bagwell of my DS but curious how everyone secures the battery? I have a rear seat & know clearance may be tight once the battery is in a battery box but I plan on leaving a pigtail for charging hanging out of the box so I can charge it when I charge the cart.

There are tons of ways on how to do this but I would suggest a small battery box made for like marine use. You could mount the box and drop in the battery and put on the cover. Cover would make water maintenance a little difficult but I would worry about something metal falling in there on top of exposed posts..

I picked up a battery tray/holder kit at camping world for I think ten bucks. There is not much to it so it doesnt take up as much room as a marine battery box would. Click link below.

Yes I would get a covered battery box. Most of them come with a strap to secure the box to the cart.

Do people bolt the box in or cut a hole in the body for the strap to go through? I don't want the box moving around.
