Hi guys, have you been able to download the instructions from Wetransfer ?

Yes, the hole is already 10mm with two flat spots. You have to remove the flat spots, then drill further at 10mm to make room for the long bolt.
It's how I intended to work, but it might be just fine if you drill it at 12mm and let the bolt go through !
The problem I see with that is that the nut won't be tight, and if you try to tighten it too much it will bend or break the plastic base.

Drilled at 10mm

Bolt goes through but stops on the first plastic wall :

Nut is tight against the wall that is against the bolt' shoulder, there is no play.

I hope it's clearer now
