Been an issue for years while searching around mcmastercarr one night for something. Stumbled on snap in cage nuts for electrical panels with square holes punched in it. There around $10 or $11 for 25 of them



Part number and useful info to find them

If you don't make both sides straight, they can be a real pain

I know my one 432 had all regular nuts on the inside. So feel like this will work well and better than that. I did share this on fb first. Got the 50 50 mix of like and its not original bunch. But since you can't physically see them unless the hood is off im not concerned. A few guys already went and bought some. Also a few bucks cheaper than the plastic ones. Also hidden benefit is they slightly float around. So semi forgiving when starting bolts on an angle
