Securing the battery

For securing the battery I made a "bed" out of two lengths, drilled a hole for the positive wire that is soldered to the side of the battery and secured the whole thing with Velcro.

It's a snug fit, but I don't like this solution much. The positive wire is exposed close to the battery, and is in danger of touching the frame. I don't want the frame to be "energized", so I'll move the aluminium length further away and add a bottom of acrylic glass.
