Nice work @Mikee! You can get rid of the straps for your enclosure with some 2-ton epoxy. Scuff the bottom of the board with sandpaper, scuff the contact point of the box, dump a glob of the epoxy on the board and let it dry and cure. I have a similar enclosure and once I mounted it it’s never fallen off.

Wow, I never thought of that. Sounds like a good idea. I will try it today or tomorrow. Thanks!!
