I make 2 inch diameter 4mm-plywood washers with a hole saw and use tee-nuts through the hole. Be sure to plug the bottom of the tee-nut hole when you glue it on. The tee-nut will extend through the 4mm so the Keeper rail will need to be counterbore (half of the hole will need to be enlarged). The photo shows the same technique on Yakima braces but I have also done it on the plastic Keepers.
