Thanks for the update...this is the first I've heard of the Duralast "Platinum" H8. Perhaps this is why the Duralast 49 DL has been discontinued.

Don't worry so much about the upper brace (#5) in the battery compartment (its made to work with item #9...which we didn't even get here in the States)...the battery hold down clamp (#15) to the rear is what really secures the battery in place to prevent it from sliding fore/aft as well as up/down. Just make sure that the hold down clamp and vent tubes are hooked & clamped down correctly.
