Default Deka ETX30L battery question

After my stock battery not holding a charge anymore and doing my research. I purchased a Deka ETX30L AGM battery the other day with the brass automotive posts. Z starts perfect with it and i saved 14.3lbs too!

After completing mission impossible and removing the Delco. I noticed the factory tie down is not doing its job holding the battery tightly in place due to the difference in size obviously.
My question is what everyone with the Deka, Braille and Odyssey batterys are doing to keep them from moving?

Where did you purchase this battery and was it expensive? It's what I'm looking for. Can you tell that the battery is moving around when you drive the car? I'm thinking you might try some thick foam insulation stuffed around the battery.

I purchased locally from battery world. With the brass posts it cost 250.00. Im thinking of doing something like that actually to keep it in place. I havent driven it, with how loose it is im too scared too.
Love this battery though, its pretty cold here still and after sitting for a few days it fires right up. Rated at 400 CCA but its under rated since the meter showed 600...

I saw the ETX30l on the Deka website for $109. Is it the same battery you have? I think it's only rated at 350cca.

I noticed that on their website too but the sticker says 400 cca on my battery. Dont mind why i paid so much for it, i live in Canada. HOME of over inflated prices, if i was paying what yall pay for parts and install i would have the illest Vette in C-town...

As mentioned earlier, that blue foam works good. I have the ETX18 and it starts my high compression motor with ease.
