Clicking on the Create link brings up the Location component.

Select the location and then click on Link to Locations.
Finish filling in the top container information and then click Create and Link to top container.
Another way to link a location to a top container is to use the gear wheel menu next to the repository name and select Manage Top Containers.

A third way to link a location to a top container is to link it to more than one top container at the same time. Click on the gear wheel menu next to the repository name, and select manage top containers.
