Battery Clamps ?

Would anybody know where I can find stainless steel clamps to hold down a battery ? I have 2 x 130A batteries which are pretty heavy 45kg each and I need something solid to hold them in place.

Thanks for your suggestions

Funnily enough I am working on the same sort of thing as I found one of the plastic battery box clips broken when changing out the batteries last week.
I am going to use ratchet straps and 127mm SS cleats, slightly modified, which should be solid enough without too much expense.

Have a look at this;

Buddy Cam Band

Enough to hold a cylinder in place, stainless metal parts plastic over centre fastener.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have gone with SST brackets on either side of the battery and a 50mm belt wich is strapped across the battery.

It was the T that confused me, normally most folk write stainless as SS. I wasn't sure if it was a company name or something available ready made rather then the home made ones I am making......
