Default How to mount chassis feet?

So i bought a chassis that came with supplied rubber feet (ugly but functional, i guess ). But i haven't the slightest clue how they are supposed to be mounted. Any ideas? The accessories package only has screws and no nuts. The bottom of the chassis has no pre-drilled holes for the feet.

I'm guessing it has something to do with the metal washer, but there are no nuts supplied, so how do i tighten up the screws? The screws are also too short...

That style foot mounts using a pan head screw through a hole in the chassis, either tapped, or with a nut, washer and lockwasher on the other side. You need to make a trip to the hardware store. I suppose you could also use a disk of double stick foam tape if you don't want to drill a hole- some of them are very strong. I've no idea what that ugly black disk is- or is it the other side of the foot. Not exactly commercial quality stuff!
