How to install a stock escutcheon?

I'm putting together a shooter stock (Boyd's) and wanted to ask before I tackled this and possibly cracked something. What's the best/safest way to install the stock escutcheon?

I'm assuming the stock will not have one as it's advertised no metal. I have one (stock escutcheon) on the way form Bill Ricca.

Thanks guys.

I just push/tap it in a bit and then let the screw draw it into the stock from there.

Put an old recoil bolt into it from the nut's bottom. Push it in the hole and you may have to tap the head of the bolt to get it into the hole enough. Then put the recoil plate in and another bolt down from the top and get it started. Let the bolt pull it into the hole so it will line up correctly. If you only have one bolt put something over it when you hammer. In some holes the nut can go in cocked enough so the bolt from the top will not start.
Never hit metal to metal on anything that stays. You can use brass but I use a piece of paper between the metal and a brass punch so I don't have to clean off the brass shine on parts. If the screwdriver slot is not shined, put something over the screwdriver so not to shine the bottom of the slot.

It really is simple, if the hole is drilled at the proper angle. I ran into some of the Plainfield Machine rejects years ago and they were a nightmare. The screw never lined up with the escutcheon.
