Yes it will be secured.
I am planning on welding some small uprights on each platform to secure the bottom from sliding and then using straps around the keg to the stand itself. I was in Wal Mart this weekend and found what function like a bunjee(sp) but are thin and wide like a strap. They are adjustable and fit perfectly around the keg and hook into the square tubing.
The stand does sit slightly crooked in the pic but the ladder makes it look way off. The reason it sits crooked is that when I was tacking it all togethar it was flat on the concrete but when I welded the underside of the legs(vertical L channel to the square runners) it threw everything out of whack from the bead line. A little grinding should fix that. I am also planning on putting some form of adjustable leveling pads on the ends of the legs.
Each leg can be unbolted from the square tubing and the square tubing comes apart in three sections and each platform is removable. I need to take a pic of it disassembled. It can easily be assembled, disassembled, and carried by one person. Although it may never be the roaming brew stand, space is a concern in suburbia since my automotive fetish gets the majority of the garage. This will be stored in the "brew room" (spare bed room) next to my kegorator/fermentation chamber.
Temp controlled chamber that fits 4 carboys and the kegorator side that still holds 8 cornys. Yet another work in progress.....
