It's been years since I used one of these things...but IIRC, the sliding part is to prevent it from moving when not in use.
This is yet another serious advantage of sailing a multihull.
Good point about the sloshing. But in that case, the stove's ability to swing can be made entirely dependent on the thumbscrews. When I want it to swing, I loosen them; when I want it to stop, I tighten them. When do I slide the slider?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
