Bracket/Holder

Hello dear and wise people, can you tell me if "bracket and holder" could mean the same? or else, what's the diference? I'm reading a stove list of components, and it mentions both of them (and even clasp). When translating into Spanish, could I use "seguro" for anyone of them? Thank you so much in advance.

    They might be the same or similar; although a bracket usually has some kind of fastener attached to it. A "holder" just implies a receptacle where another object is placed; it may only be resting there, and not fastened, or it may be fastened.

    More context information would be helpful.
