Default Muffler bracket

I got a mountain bike, and I'm looking for an after market muffler bracket. I have a 3 inch frame and the bracket that came with my kit doesn't work with it. Is there an after market bracket that fits my muffler or should I go to the hardware store and make my own?

Probably easier to just use a hose clamp or something.

I didn't use my bracket, and I've never had a problem.

Automotive chromed or stainless coil bracket fits the stock muffler dia. Then a strong piece of straight steel from it to your frame or engine works well and looks good also. Yep normally nothing is needed but if you are using rough trails maybe? Pep boys have them in stock. Having a vise to bend the straight steel is kind of a must for bending custom brackets. I have several sections of steel pipe also and a brass and leather hammer to pound brackets into any shape.
