Default X-pen/crate recommendations

To keep it simple Bandit needs his own area where he can just chill without the kids bugging him. I can just tell Briggs puts him on edge sometimes and as he is getting older and Briggs is getting larger I can tell Briggs' crazy behavior frightens him. If he is asleep and Briggs wakes him up he looks really scared and stiff. I can't 100% supervise their interactions all the time as stuff needs to get done. So obviously for everyone's safety and comfort I would like to start putting Bandit away for part of the day.

Suggestions on what to do? A crate isn't something i really want to stick him in as small areas DO bug him. Is there anyway I can mak an Xpen less moveable? Because Briggs will just push it around everywhere if thats the case.

Our x-pen came with little clamps to put on the top (or bottom?) to help keep it in the square shape.

The baby gate? Could you screw it into the wall? Mind is, and I could even sit on it and it isn't going anywhere.
