    Hi all
    I'm in the process of fitting my second leisure battery in the new van. It is going under the bench seat and in the place where it will fit I have noticed some pre-drilled and re-filled holes - they are in the right positions for the size of the battery and are obviously where the previous owner has had a 2nd battery and remove it. I would rather use these instead of making more holes in the floor!

    I need to find some brackets to hold the battery down but can't find anything the right size!

    The pre-drilled holes in the van are 6mm diameter and will need a M6 bolt - the holes go straight through the van floor so they will need a bolt on from underneath - there is a metal strengthening plate around each of the holes under the van. The two screw holes for each bracket are 28mm apart (centre to centre)....

    So basically, does anyone know where I can get something to hold a battery down, possibly like the attached picture where the screw holes are 6mm or less diameter and are set 28mm apart?

    As usual, any help appreciated...
