Retrofit Recessed LED - Grounding Question

I bought Halo Retrofit Recessed LEDs, and they have to be grounded to the housing. They provided a screw and a nut, and say to either use a hole in the housing or a stud. There is a hole at the top of the housing that may work. The ones on the side seem too large. There is also a height adjustment feature with a wing nut. I thought maybe I can put it under that, but I’m not sure if that would be adequate. Does the grounding wire have to go on the side of the housing, or is the top okay? If anyone could give me some input, I would appreciate it.

You can attach the ground anywhere there will be a good connection to the metal can.

The easiest might be to one of the four screws towards the bottom which hold the can to the bracket. You can also use the adjustment wingnut to make the connection.
