Instead of using the nutsert for the back, I used a plastic pop rivet. See pics.
Also, I looked at all possible metal-to-metal contacts points and put some 3m electrical tape there.
I actually gave up on the speed nut. Too tight to get in there. I just zip-tied it.😜

For those, like me, who are skittish about drilling into the frame, double-sided tape works great as well in place of the nutsert and bolt. Dom recommended to me 3M/Scotch Extreme (20 lb) Outdoor Mounting tape, applied in double thickness to the area where the plate contacts the frame. After applying the tape and bolting up the plate, use a 2x4 and a floor jack on the area where you applied the tape to get good adhesion and give it a few minutes to cure. Thanks, Dom!
