I have made a small box to mount to metal rack. The rack is approximately 10 inches by 10 inches with two metal bars running across the middle, spaced evenly.
I do not want the box to move at all. I am looking for suggestions as to the best way to mount the box to the rack. The box has a lid I want to be able to open, so straps around the whole thing to the rack will not work.
I was thinking perhaps drilling through the bottom of the box and sinking two or three screws into a metal bar or metal strap under the rack and on the bottom of the box, and using bolts and threaded screws to hold it in place.
My biggest problem is where to get the metal to run the bolts through. I need to be thin, yet strong.
If you can help me out with suggestions, I would appreciate it.
