@TylerC,

Ron bought the system new, the parts in question came with the MFT 3 bracket/clamp.

(he text me a picture earlier and asked, I don't have the bracket so I have no clue what the parts retain)

Do you have the foot pedal mounted to your MFT3 rail?  I don't have the bracket, but did watch the video and those look like the hardware that was used to mount it.

If you have the base plate that that the vac clamp mounts to you will see a couple of notches, the nuts go in the bottom of the mft rail, the knobs and round retainers go into the nuts, if you want the clamp to swing down and out of the way under the table the knobs and round retains slide into the slots and lock it under the mft table, can't send a picture but will look for instructions for you, hope this helps.
