  • Place shelf brackets to one side of the bucket, just inside the corners, and mark flange to cut
  • Cut out plastic bucket flange to fit shelf brackets flush with the bucket, using a utility knife.
  • Bolt the shelf brackets to one side of the bucket, just inside the corner using 4 machine screws, and fender washers and lock nuts inside the bucket.
  • Bend down the brackets forming hooks, at the first screw hole.

any suggestions as to how to get those brackets bent?

Yes - I use vice-grips and a hammer. I bold the bracket on so I can access the bolt, and then bend the bracket. If you bend the bracket at the bolt hole, it bends easier. I have made 20 pairs of these panniers this way.
