Mounting a vented loop

I'm trying to figure out the best way to mount a vented loop.

Is it as simple as driving some wood screws into the bulkhead

Or fabricate a plywood mounting block and glue it to the bulkhead with some bronze bolts sticking out similar to backing plates with flange bolts.

Some drilled and tapped g-10 plate would work also

I looked and searched, but there isn't a lot about the actual mounting of the center loops. Is there some kind of guidelines or best practices? The bolt/screw eyes are mid way on the loop, and it feels like you need a little bit of a spacer to clear the hose from the wall.

Re: Mounting a vented loop

Our factory installed units are held in place with screws, and or bolt studs depending on size, either to the bulkhead behind, or plywood extensions !
