Yes I have a grate on the bottom of my basket. I do not have it elevated off of the bottom except for an old ash catcher I took off one of my OTS. I just balance it on top of that because I have not got around to putting a screw on the bottom to elevate it..
Got done with the shelf today. I need to paint it or put a different type of top shelf on it. But I am pleased with the brackets
I set it up so it is pinned in two places and then you can swing it up and down for storage when you remove the back pin or in my case a bolt
