Acoustic mag soundhole pickup issues!?

Acoustic mag soundhole pickup issues!?
I performed last night with my old Guild acoustic and an equally old spring-mounted Lawrence soundhole pickup. Sounded great; now I want to do a permanent mount - i.e. endpin jack.  
Questions to the experienced:  
Will transport, etc. cause this style of pickup to pop out or eat away at the wood on the sound hole?  
Mechanically, which acoustic mag pickup brand uses the best (most secure, least harmful to guitar) mounting scheme?  
Thanks to anybody who has an opinion, and kudos to Mr. tboy!
