Ramhammer bracket

I recently installed a new to me Ramhammer intake.I thought that I had installed correct to the instructions (with the eyebolt and spring),but my spring is gone already.
I have a design I am working on,but the tab for the spring attachment is really too small for the weight of this intake,in my opinion.Has anyone here used a different method of stability like a bracket and if so can you share your idea?Thanks

Here is one with the spring still attached.This was the way the directions suggested,but after removing the stock airbox frame(also in the directions) there was space under the intake.This presumably made it bounce a bit when driving.I lost the spring.I spent some time in my shop today working on a bracket.I will get some pics of it later.

You could do a round strap around intake to a bracket. Or have a tab welded to that intake pipe and make a tiny bracket and bolt it to the frame there. Unless that intake is not metal

A bracket would look much better.

The intake is steel,but I was trying to avoid welding it.It has a decent powdercoated finish I want to maintain as a basecoat.I intend to give it a custom paint job in the spring.The bracket I came up with bolts to the engine bay and puts downward pressure on the intake to hold it in place.It has a slot for the intake tab to go into.I did a quick test fit last night,and started spray painting it.I will get a photo later today.
