If the stop will slide or pivot out of the way while cutting, that is not a safe stop. This will bind just as much as a workpiece on a table saw between the fixed fence and the blade. This stop unlocks as easily as the saw fence with the thumb screw.For the extremely paranoid you could put a pivot on this stop (I advise against it!), however I have never had an issue with this stop and a workpiece binding. Of course, you do have to actually HOLD the workpiece against the fence and then you don't have any binding. Not using an incredibly dull blade helps as well.Any tool can be made to be unsafe depending on the user and the level of lack of care taken. That being said, I don't take an unusually high or low amount of care and wouldn't post something I had ever had a problem with without disclaiming such (I was going to say I wouldn't post it, but I do seem to remember warning of the hazards of the sharp ends of tie wire and showing the bloody result).What I did do was to cut a relief to avoid sawdust buildup so that the stop remains accurate, but that doesn't much affect the safety, just the effectiveness.
Bad, bad, bad! This setup will allow the cut piece to bind between the blade and the stop. A safe stop must be able to slide or pivot out of the way. Better try again.

I just jammed toothpicks in with pliers, lite little tiny shims. Yes, they may work their way into the saw. If it becomes a problem, that will be when I open it up and work in the inside. For now, this works. And you can hardly see it.
