Stupid T-trak module questions

If the t-trak module will be in the “normal” configuration with the flat surface on top, I assume the threaded inserts go in the square corner blocks as shown? Are the holes in the top of the module left open to adjust the leg bolts?

I'm in the same boat as you as I am about to start my first module, so take my answer with a grain of salt. But from what I've read, yes those holes are so you can adjust the module height from the top without having to fiddle with any wrenches/awkward angles from the bottom.

The intent is to put some sort of easily removable scenery element to hide them on the top. Hope this helps!

You are both correct- those holes are meant for using a hex key to raise or lower the module without having to go under the module.

Here is a good T-Trak site discussing more than boxes:

Our club sets all modules at 4" and everyone comes along with a 4" piece of card, plastic, whatever, and sets the height before clicking them together. Also, adjusting a small amount once they are setup isn't that hard.
