The installation video is excellent. What should have been a simple fix proved to be difficult for me. Perhaps a function of not enough hand strength to "snap" the axles in place. After trying to use a screwdriver to pry open a side enough to slide on and soaking in hot water to make the axles more pliable -- neither of which worked -- I turned the rack on its side, inserted the axle in the opening and then stepped on it. Voila! That worked beautifully and the next two were easy using the "stand-on-it" method. For anyone with a similar issue as far as hand strength, I recommend this method.
