daft question, but have you asked JBT what they recommend, they must have been asked this question previously or even had the same problem themselves?

We have a piece of roll mat foam in the bilge and the Bruce anchor lies upside down with its stock along the centreline of the hull. Rope and chain in a builders bucket down there as well keeps in check.
Been there almost 10 years and not damaged the hull at all.

The locker is pretty deep and the shape suited to the Bruce - I think the Ballistic bilge and hull shape might not be as deep though.

I don't know if one of these https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=br...chBox&tbm=isch might help locate it?

I've got old rubber car mats in my anchor locker and a LOT of chain/warp on top of it. It doesn't move as I then put all the fenders on top as well.

I use one of these plastic milk crates. It's heavy duty, light and strong. Plus it lets air circulate through the line so it dries quickly...

I use a doormat - I think the correct term is Coir. Rubber backed so easy to cut to fit accurately to line the bottom and sides of a locker then stick in place. It provides a lot of cushioning even when hammering through chop. You may not even need to stick it in place.
Cheap too at under a fiver. door mats, coir, seagrass, sisal,jute
