the tray that has arrived has one of these screws poking through the tray.
i suppose that the worse thing i could do would be to tyrap it in place - fortunately i have a "pit" in the garage so it should be easy. in a few places i'll be able to get a bolt and a nut on the other side...
i have no idea the condition of the captive nuts at the mo' until i get under it.

thank you
