I would think something like this wouldn't be to hard to make.

I dont like the idea of that crossbar being so close/over the terminals.

My buddy had one like that "made in USA" one.

Pretty simple. I think he just tacked on some allthread.
I will say......the nuts have backed off on a longer trip before and he ended up using all of my zip ties to get home.

Two things about this photo. The cross member is close to the terminals. But if you are making it yourself make it so it's not. Two being if the nuts came loose put another set over the first. Lock it down. Plenty of room left on them threads.
