IIRC, the brackets mount to the underside of each
drive.  Then, one end of the bracket slides into a
"slot" in the "cage".  Then, it is fastened in

I can't recall if the screws that fasten each drive
go into the sides of the drives or not.  Probably
do (?).  In any case, the bracket helps ensure the
drive is held in place since one side of each drive
is inaccessible so any screws would only secure the
"outer" side of the drive to the cage.

I had four 4G drives in one but found they ran far
too hot for the case's ventilation.
