better safe than sorry on this beta testing!
The safety wire won't do much because it can still move in the tire direction.
What you need are very stable brackets that will not move and if Loaded already went this route than that pretty much answers your question.
Now if you had a pannier bracket, somehow you can tie something in for stability.
