Handlebar mounting bracket

I have a small plastic electrical accessory box (2"x2"x .75") that I would like to mount in the center area of the handlebars. I have looked around for a generic bracket that would clamp to the bars and have a couple of holes that I could use to mount my box. I could adapt a bracket made to mount something else and I am open to other methods of mounting it. I am trying to avoid using a hose clamp.

Or I know the big box home suppliers have something like this.

Both great ideas. The parts from J&P are very nice if a little pricey. Would be better if they came in black. The cheap P-clamp should do nicely. Mucho thanks.

Here's what I use:

A little black paint helps hide it if that's important to you.

I looked at those but ended up using the plastic P brackets also from Lowes
