1. Holddown for a battery positioned in a battery tray, with the battery having a top and opposite sides, comprising, in combination:

  • first and second brackets, with each of the brackets including a first part for abutting with the top of the battery, a second part for abutting with the side of the battery, and a cross rod extending over the top of the battery, with the first bracket including a channel for slidably receiving the cross rod of the second bracket and the second bracket including a channel for slideably receiving the cross rod of the first bracket; and

    first and second drawing means adapted to extend between the battery tray and the first and second brackets respectively for drawing the first and second brackets toward the battery tray to sandwich the battery between the battery tray and the first and second brackets, with the shape of the channels allowing the first and second brackets to be readily assembled and disassembled by pivoting and sliding the first and second brackets and binding upon the cross rods when the first and second brackets are assembled and drawn toward the battery tray to prevent sliding of the cross rods in the channels.
