Is there a better way than the straps? I keep breaking the plastic clasps

I bought from Bass Cat because they had aluminum trays. They around 40 dollars a tray but if you only need straps go to Amazon and you can find battery straps with stainless buckles, 2 for under 10 dollars.

My Skeeter battery trays and Skeeter buckles are 17 yrs old and still functioning as new. Maybe you can buy some from Skeeter. [Linked Image]

Those look good, but I’d be sure to drill drain holes into each corner. Trust me, you don’t want an inch of stagnant water underneath each battery. It makes for a bad smell and a chore to clean.
