Crash bar install issues on C400X

Just received the BMW crash bars from Revzilla without the instructions. But a call to them and the sent me a PDF version. In looking at the instructions, one mounting point requires drilling a hole into the plastic footboard. Then later on, a bolt merely goes into that hole without a nut on the other end. So looks like only one mounting point on each side goes into a strong metal frame part. Anyone have experience installing the BMW bars for a 2019 C400X? I'm inclined to return the whole thing and go with Wunderlich or Givi bars.

Turns out there is a threaded nut once you drill the hole into the footboard. So a large bolt goes into this nut which secures the bottom of the crash bar. So all is fine now, and the bars are nice and tight.
