lat pulldowns possible on cable crossover machine?

Curious if there is a way to do regular lat pulldowns on this machine? (see attached) I don't have the budget or space to add a second pully machine. I can get the lat pulldown bar attachment but not sure of the seating or how to keep grounded during the exercise. Thank you.

Why buy a Power Rack?

I'm currently using a cheapish squat rack, which at the moment is ok but a bit wobbly. The spotter posts are next to useless so they are not even fitted. Squats are a real area of weakness for me and lack of safety isn't helping matters. Aside from the obvious extra safety, what other benefits...
