Default What to use to hold down a battery (not the obvious)

I upgraded my TC4 to a Carbon Fiber Chassis with holes cut out for each cell , but my question is what do people use to hold the battery in place ?

Besides Tape, Battery Strap, Velcro, or Glue (the obvious ones). Hmm, that's a hard question. A guy at my track built a metal side holder clip with set screws. Then again, thats just a strap on sideways.

battery strapping tape available at your LHS or use "strapping tape" from your local hardware store.
