The anchor setup in Jmichaels image is more than enough to keep you safe on most bolted sport climbs. Your own setup was a bit too redundant, unnecessarily so, and could lead to a mistake which would lead to an accident.

Most people use 2 opposed non-locking biners for the power point. If you feel better using lockers all around, feel free.

edit: upon further review, it seems I'm taking some things for granted. What knots are you using on the cordelettes?

if you are going to use draws, both master biner and top biners must be the exact same kind otherwise, forces on one side is greater due to mismatch biner length. not a biggy in TR but, it can be a problem on lead anchor.
