    Fitting door cards

    I'm thinking of making up some door cards & covering with material. I'd like to fix them so I don't have any set screws screwed through the material. Where can I get the clips that fit into the board before it's covered? What are they called & will it matter what thickness the board is or the size of the threaded hole (possibly 3/8unc) in the door? That is if this is the right way of doing it, thanks

    I use these drill panel and the door before covering, there are different sizes available but here is an example.
