How do y'all secure your recliners?

Trying to figure out the best way to secure the recliners in my 371REBH. Just picked it up last weekend and useless guy doing the PDI showed me "his" way. I had a buddy spot me as I was backing it and he said he could hear something hitting the wall and actually flexing the wall/glass.

When we had our fifth-wheel, we placed the recliners back-to-back and secured them with draw-up cinch straps.

ditto and my dealer gave me straps and floor latches that I screwed into the floor to secure them. (He got them from Forest River.) Works great!!

Love the 371 so far! Haven't had a chance to stay in it yet but have it mostly set up. Only issue was cabinet door came open during travel and got hung up when the slide was going out.

My 832IKBS Flagstaff came from the factory with straps installed. They face each other in the rear, with just enough room for both rear slides to miss them. The strap is attached to the floor in each corner. Placing them correctly is important. My dealer service department learned the hard way that recliner handles are not forgiving to slideout trim. (Really not sure that that gang is capable of learning anything! Another story.)
However, FR assembly crews did a great job on my unit. No major problems in 2 years, 25,000 miles!
