Loose bolts - not just boeing

I had my HV battery replaced in my 2018 MX last month. While backing out of my garage heard a sound and found a rod and two screws had fallen from the car (see pic).

I have to believe this is related to the HV battery replacement done about 6 weeks back. Tesla SC can't remotely determine whether the car is safe to drive (just to the service center about 15 miles away).

I have to believe that there is more than just this rod holding the HV battery in place but would rather err on the side of caution?

Does anyone know what this rod is and if it would be safe to drive to the service center? Do note that towing cost is not an issue thanks to AAA (so not worth getting into a discussion with Tesla service).

Many Thanks
