Sorry for the confusion, when I looked at your post, you had only posted one of the pictures at that time.

The official Lotus track pack solution and some other aftermarket solutions also include an extra bar that connects the two toe link bolts in order to put the toe link bolts into "double shear", like this:

Anyway, not at all saying this is the only way to do things. Nor could I explain to you the pros and cons of the different approaches. If you are happy with the BOE solution, then that's good, one less thing to worry about.
