Bonsai wire for non Bonsai trees in containers

Have any of you used bonsai wire instead of or with the use of stakes to hold smaller trees in containers until the roots settle in. I have some kumquat trees that I placed in 511 mix and they seem too top heavy and I’m worried about them coming out of the potting soil. They are in 5 gallon buckets. I thought maybe I could run wire from holes in the side and loosely wrap around the trunk or even make a sort of hook with the wire. Anyone have any adivice on using the bonsai wire to hold trees in place after they have been potted? Thanks!
