How to secure line6 m5 to a pedalboard/ pedal tray?

Hi everyone, I am in the process of finishing my rack, and part of that is mounting some pedals to a pedal shelf. I have them all complete except for my M5. I am using dual lock to mount everything, but the M5's screws are preventing the pedal from being dual locked to the drawer. How have you mounted your M5 or other pedals that have screw heads sticking out the bottom?

I have removed the feet, tried to put dual lock over the screws, and none of it works.
Thanks in advance for any help!

I don't quite remember the screws being a problem, I've always used Dual Lock to mount the M5 with no issues. What Dual Lock are you using? There is the low profile version and then the regular version that is commonly used, that when two pieces are joined has a height just under 1/4". I use a 250/250 count Dual Lock. There is no need to place the Dual Lock over the screw though, the height between thee two Dual Locks is enough of a clearance.

Thanks for the suggestions
It looks like I purchased the low profile kind (engaged thickness of .1"), so picking up a roll of the regular stuff should fix my problem.

Yes, drilling into the pedal tray isn't an option, as it would prevent the tray from opening and closing.

Here is the kind you should look for. Although if you only need a small amount, you should be able to find them via EBay in 1' increments.

The link above is the 400/170 count/combination. I prefer the 250/250 count and you can get them in either clear or black:

You could alternatively use double-sided adhesive, which is what I used for my pedalboard before. I'd go with what Jnepo1 says though, he knows his business.
