That excessive motion can and will eventually cause the nuts to loosen... add lock washers, or locking nuts and coast/weight increases.

I do realize what you're using is easily available and works, but a plastic grommet type fastener or even zip ties would provide more than enough holding power.
.........maybe even velcro?
