As long as its bead rolled and coupler is attached right, you do not need any sort of a stay or bracket. There are plenty of guys 15-20psi without needing those sort of things. Just make sure its rolled at the ends. Hair spray also on the couplers works magic if your worried about them popping off. I have had setups before I didnt get to roll and used that and was hard to even get them back off

The way I secured mine was to put a ziptie on the hose as a clamp. And then tied the hose up with another ziptie. So if mine were to come off, it would just dangle beneath car by the hose.
