2. The first basket hangs in the standard fashion. See the close up of how and where to connect the standard hook so that it hangs level and water drops down.
3. Bend standard hooks with pliers, as shown, and insert below third rail. (Hook on left is bent. Hook on right is not.) This pulls the basket tight against the hooks and makes it more stable. If it’s too high on the rungs, it tends to lean out.
Also note, I reversed the orientation so that the closed portion is to the front. This helps keep the longer, heavier items in. It creates a good angle for drops to drip, too!
