disk brake question...

im new to disk brakes, inally figured out to assemble them, but one thing doesnt seem right. ive placed the caliper into its slot, but what holds it in? everythinh seems to loose to stay that way. its a lincoln versailles rear end. new parts, and ive bolted on the caliper holder. I slide it into whjat appears to be its slot and it looks like nothings holding it in. theres a allen wrench screw under it, but it doesnt go in far enough to tighten anything.as I have it the front pad is sitting in slots in the caliper holder, and sort of floating there. the piston is behind it. but the caliper assembly looks like it would just fall out the back as soon as you drive. I have no brake lines in place yet. is it possible thsi is what keeps it in place?
