Hey, got a pretty easy fix for you, changing batteries will be even easier too, no need to mess with rubber bands.
run a thin metal strip or something thin and strong to fit on the top of the LG in between the mounting holes from the back strut to about 1.5 inch or so past the front strut, jb scuff areas to be bonded and CA into place. You can scuff and paint it black to blend in or I just used a Permanent magic marker worked great
Cut off the battery mounts. Put a strip of insulator (the kind you would use to insulate sides of window sills and doors) on to the strip about where your battery would go, I could only find thin ones so I used to side by side, this is to pad the battery and help keep it in place, barely noticeable when battery's mounted since you'd be smashing the battery down to it. Then, get a good quality velcro strips that have the strong sticky back, make a velcro mount up front and one near the back area of the battery. I did this for my Voyager E because I had to to fit the lipo pack and it worked awesome, way better than the stock mount anyway. Battery held in more soid and took about 5 seconds to change the battery. It also looked really nice.
I wish I took pics but unfortunately don't have any close ups...
