I fitted flush fitting D rings screwed down on to the deck either side off the tank and then use a quick release strap cut to size. Your floor should be at least 3/4 inch thick.

Use stainless screws and put some sikaflex onto the screws before screwing them down.

I've got patches with fabric loops weaved into them which are glued to the floor. Saves having to drill holes. The ratchet strap runs around the tank & through the loops
