more hard latch points for the build plate

so on the N2+ right now, there are only the two metal latches at the back of the build plate that you slide it into, this only really secures the plate in one direction during printing, might I suggest latches that can be mechanically opened and closed on the three other sides of the build plate to secure it better during printing? (they would be secured to the heating plate but could be opened to allow the build plate to be removed and replaced and then latched down to hold it securely in all 4 directions) the included clips don't do a great job at this task since they aren't really secured to anything.


Edit: just to clarify, the left and right side would just need L shaped brackets coming up from the heating plate, and wouldn't need any moving parts, but the front would need L or [ shaped brackets that can be straightened so the build plate can be inserted
