perfect answer^^^, the thing they worry about mostly at U/L is legs with hollow areas (tubes for stove feet with no air way and closed off so to speak), i personally dont even think that would be an issue (it just would not get passed U/L approvals in many cases). In the case with the 404, probably best to make a cinderblock pad and make sure the 4 legs sit on the cinder block (as if it was the hearth) because the 404 should have a built in heat plate under it (this heat plate was not made to take the weight of the stove, the feet were!) .... again.... level, strong, secure as Carbon says!
