Battery in the boot (trunk)

After 2 Odyssey batteries died after 14 months each and not getting warranty on either, I worked out that it was the heat of the engine bay that killed them. Since I'll never give Odyssey another penny I purchased a Fullriver and installed it in the boot running heavy 2 gauge cable... hopefully I'll get 10+ years out of it...

Is it fastened by any means?
.
The wood is fastened by 4 countersink coach bolts and the metal jacket fastened by 8 countersink self tappers into the wood. The metal jacket is a very neat fit so the battery just sits in there... It might come out in a roll over...

Thankfully my car never had fire in it for over 25 years, however I always have big fire extinguisher in the trunk . In other words, wish for peace, but prepare for war
