Bolt your safe to these with a washer and nut any it isn't moving!
My safe is too heavy to make this practical when it comes to setting it in place, and I didn't have it here so I didn't want to run the risk of being 1/16 off. For me, the safe had to be set on the slab and then drilled.

If I had a lighter safe already here, your method would be the best by far to secure it down.
