That also gives me the idea of gluing a bolt into the holes, if that glue breaks, the bolt will have nowhere to go.  Maybe a nut directly on the other side of the pcb from the bolt head?


Why not a solder pad on board and solder the bolt-head to the board.

I should test this before rejecting the idea, but my understanding is solder won't stick to galvanized steel or whatever they make the bolts out of.  Any idea if that's true?  Maybe if I find some brass bolts?

Most hardware is zinc plated. At a prior employer,We had to mask screw heads on PC boards before we wave solder them.
