To stack or not to stack??

Hi all, I have recently been trying to bring my bench press up (three plates finally around the corner!) and paying more attention to form. One of the things that I read everywhere is that your wrist and elbow joints should be stacked in the bottom position. This seems to make sense...

Next step up squat rack from PPR220X? Tried equipment sticky

Title. Outgrowing home gym PowerLine PPR220X squat rack, thinner steel and although it says it can hold 600lbs it feels questionable with anything over 315 already. Pros and cons to safety straps versus sabers? Different style liftoffs? Attachments?
