R-4 stability/weigh down

I'm looking to purchase the R-4, I have read through the threads about ideas stabilizing/weighing it down. I had a thought of buying 4 single plate storage, one on each corner. Has anyone tried this? Does anyone think this will give sufficient stabilization if weight is always keep on the vertical plate storages?

I have about almost 1000lbs of bumper that are just laying on the floor. Our S-2 get weighted down by a set of bumpers. But my gym will not let me bolt any of our racks down. The platform style is an option but if plate storage works we will not have bumpers on the floor. Sorry may have been too much info.

Re: R-4 stability/weigh down

I've got the R4 and I use two single plate storage attachments with 100# plates on each to stabilize it. It works fine and there's no wobble when I do pull ups or rings.

That's good to know, I was going to purchase one for each corner. I'll just purchace two for now. Saves me a little money, now I can get something else!
