It sounds like somebody else in the discussion had the same problem, so maybe these things went thru a design revision somewhere along the way?
I sent some crappy cell phone photos of mine, though VCForum may approve

Agreed, that wouldn't work.
> Speaking of the pop panel thingies, they have a threaded insert in the center. I may just drill a hole on either side of my KC8A so that I can insert a long screw from the front and thread it into that insert. I hate to drill holes in my KC8A, but right now it's just being held on with shipping tape...
I also drew up, but have not tested, a simple 3D triangular solid with
some tabs on it. This would be 3D printed, then used instead of the
bent bar stock with the kept nut. Instead, you'd dill and tap the
plastic where the screw was to enter. (The tabs have holes for the
screws that mount it to the box/rack.)
