Jerry cans deck storage?

Jerry Cans seem to always come loose in the rough stuff. Anyone have a better way of storing their jerry cans on deck other than ratcheting together around the base of the A frame?

I strap my fuel tanks down onto the deck using stainless pad eyes, never hand them come loose.

Jerry Cans

When I have carried them, which is very rarely, I have tied them firmly to the backrest frames of my seat pods. They have always stayed in place.

I must admit that I always use "polypropolene" type carryers for my spare fuel. These come with pour and breather screw caps and, seem to me, to be "safer" than metal jerry cans. The metal ones always have the paint peeling off them anyway-this tends to get in the fuel and play havoc.
As for security, I also use Chewy' method without a problem.

this is what i use when going on a long trip i brought 1 camping mat 5.00 cut it up to fit tight round Jerry cans, wrap around with duck tape (great stuff duck tape) 1 storage box from staples 14.00 it holds 3 Jerry cans tight fit then just strap it to deck if rough but long trips are planned for a smooth ride so no need to strap it down... 1 filler pipe quick shake and 20lts in tank before you know it ..works great for me

If anyone does carry a Jerry can either on a rib or in a car for a 5.00 camping mat it stops all the banging and knocks even when strapped to the A frame
