1. Clip the bolt-end biner where the spine rests against the rock (or flip it over). Or simply clip the ring instead (these anchors tend to gouge biners anyway). Prevents breaking the nose of the biner as well as accidental opening of the gate should it be pushed against the wall (the latter situation is largely reduced with modern notch-gate biners).

2. Untwist the draws. Twisted draws will want to naturally untwist, resulting in a twisted rope or either a rope unclipping itself from them (happens more frequently with single draws on protection bolts). This leads to the importance of # 3.

3. Oppose the rope-end biners.
