Default What hardware to restrain this object?

Hi all,

I'm installing a water filtration system in my RV!

The system going in a cabinet, stands upright, and fits the space pretty perfectly.

My one question is - how to restrain it? I'm putting it at the back of the cabinet and I'm thinking some kind of band around it, that's fixed to the back of the cabinet, might be one way to do it.

The only time I'd need to use it would be to release the band/restraint and take the whole unit out of the cabinet. Otherwise, it just needs to make it stay at the back of the cabinet.

Any idea what hardware I could use for this? I'm sure there's a braindead solution to this, right?

Here's what it looks like:


Thanks!

Welcome to the site.

How about a couple eye bolts and some kind of strap ties.

Cars have a Crumple Zone to limit the G force occupants see in a crash and your RV maker probably has a design value for this number for RVs.

Anyway, to prevent this assembly from flying forward and becoming a deadly projectile the restraint has to be pretty strong.

Let's say
20 Gs
canister assembly weight = 5 lbs.
safety factor of 4 to 10

Your restraint should be able to withstand an impact load of
20x5x(4 to 10) = 400 to 1000 lbs.

Use through bolts and fender washers.
