I agree with most everything I have read here so I won’t repeat it, but I will add a different idea.

It is good to secure your DP to the floor so that it is stable In general, DPs at top heave with a small footprint. I did not want to drill holes in my concrete floor so I built a bracket that attaches to the wall and holes the top of the DP stable. The picture is not perfect, but you’ll (hopefully) get the idea.

If I ever need to move the DP, I can unbolt 2 bolts and it releases.

It’s nice to know that your DP is as stable as a rock.
