No Lucky, it's not safer.
Having the spring secured to the frame with two chains, such as I did, is about as safe as it gets.
I don't use spring compressors because I won't entrust my safety and well-being to a threaded stud made in Taiwan.
I've heard of spring compressors letting go. Those two chains wrapped around the frame are not going to let go. It's that simple.
