With a screw I attach a small flat washer to the underside of my inserts such that the edge of the washer protrudes about 1/16 to 1/8 inch from the bottom back edge of the insert. The washer edge then slips under the bottom of the table when the insert is put into place. This helps hold the insert down in the event the insert hangs up on the blade for some reason and tries to kick back. I never have had an insert try to kick back, but the washer adds a measure of safety when and if the unexpected arrives. Depending on the design of the table this might or might not work with your saw, but you might want to look into it as a possibility.
