These DO secure the plastic, and are under the center plastic on the tank. I did the EXACT same thin 2 weeks ago. On these, the "shoulder" is in the metal of the tank, the plastic drops over and the lo profile screw goes in place.
If you need me to, I can tear mine apart and snap a pic, but not until tomorrow after work. If you IM me a cel number I could even text you the pic.
