I did it on my 07 shanes to put on my 09 lyman. And It worked great. I drilled a pilot hole on each end where it was needed. Made sure it was through metal (cause the plate isn't entirely metal) and drilled the correct sized hole. Got a punch and punched out the rubber parts. Went to the hardware store got some metal washers to make the screws fit flush with the original hole height. and it has worked ever since. Not a problem at all and I have taken some hard falls and rough impacts with them and they still are holding up fine. But they were metal I am not sure how plastic will hold..
