I put 3 bolts through bottom holes in my basket to support it above the element. I use 2 nuts on each bolt, one below the basket and one above with the bolt head down as the thread doesn't go all the way to the bolt head. Three 1/2" bolts easily support a large grain bill because the water displaces most of the weight. Can probably support more grain than the basket can hold.
