kitch sink faucet what are these screws for ?


I am attempting to install a faucet the instructions are very poor -- I did a test fit and installed it with the washers in position as shown and the lock nut as shown but it seemed loose and not right. If anyone can verify-- the rubber washer would contact the sink (under) and then the metal washer and then the lock washer contacting the metal washer ? seemed not right

and also what are these 2 set screws for on the lock washer ??

thanks if anyone can help !!!
