Are you talking about the outer tray that goes along the perimeter? I just used nails. You may want to use screws just in case you have to move it up or down later. Any wood screw that sits flat on the tray.

I liked to use "Truss-Head screws".

They come in pointed and coarse thread for wood and bit-tipped for metal applications.

You can get them at HD or other places readily.
