You fasten the reservoir clamp to the case /w the hardware. the reservoir just sit inside the clamps.

They don't clip in, they just hold them. Use a small spanner on the rear of the case to keep the clips tight in case. As for the clips, they don't really tighten contact with the res itself. It just keeps them sitting there.

on the side there's nothing to hold it up so you have to have a base.

if you were laying it on the bottom horizontally that works too but defeats the purpose.

but either way it shouldn't slide off and there are screws that come with the clips also right?

The step 2 shows how to tighten it on the last image. Honestly the screws that came with mine just didn't do crap so I used some self tapping screws I had and that did the job. The clamps actually clamp lol...biggrin.gif
