Wall mounting a Pro Co stage snake

I'm looking for ideas on wall mount a Pro Co 24 channel stage snake for my studio.
Pro Co SM2404FBQ-100 Close-Up | Sweetwater.com

It doesn't have to be beautiful, just securely mounted on the wall and off the floor. I don't wish to take it apart and flush mount it, I just want to build some sort of frame.
If there is a wall mount kit availabe, please point out a website, I've searched.

I've seen some posts here on GS that looked very decent., if you have pix, please share!
Thanks<
Matt

Thanks Frank!
I have some HD Velcro, but I was looking for some info on actually building a box for a wall mount.
I'll try the Velcro and see if it works in the meantime.

Looks like the ends are held on with 4 screws. I'd get some L-brackets and drill holes to match.

Hey guys, thanks for the tips.
I tried the HD velco, it was a bit floppy.
Then I did tINY's technique and that was the ticket.
Holy cow, I'm like a pro or something!

Looks like you got it solved! A lot of times you can remove the inner part of an enclosure like that and drill directly through the back shell and attach it to a wall without any brackets. Then you attach the inner section back in and the whole unit floats securely on the wall. I've done that with snakes and many remote heads, like Lex 224 etc.

Not good with toolz, your idea worked fine.
This way if I want to move the box, no probs.
Thanks again!
