console install help

Went from a jump seat to a center console set up. I went to ford and got the inserts for the floor board . I put them in the floor board but just pull out. My question is how do you get them to stay in so you can mount the console. Do I need to like jb weld them in or something? Truck is a 02 f250 crew cab using a 06 console.

This is what I got from the dealer for mounting.

They need to be pressed in. Im not sure if they can be hammered in or if that will damage them. Your truck didnt come with the nuts already installed?

No it didn't come with the nuts already pressed in. The package of nuts I got from the dealer slide into the holes in the floor board all the way. Just have no idea on how to keep them from coming out.

The factory holes in the floor board are cut in the shape of a nut. The hole is not round. Neither the insert or the floor board have any teeth to grab it and lock it into the floor board. I don't know if the dealer gave me the wrong insert or what the deal is. The parts guy didn't seem to know too much about fords or parts. I looked the part number up on line and some things say super duty but most of the listings I saw for this part number were for like a luggage rack for an expedition. So idk. Was hoping someone knew the right factory part number for the insert or something else I can use to mount it. Tried going under the truck to just see if I could use nuts but on the rear 2 there inside the body channel and unable to get to the bolt.

That looks like a rivet nut. They have to be basically tightened up in spot. It usually requires a large rivet nut set tool but can be expanded with a nut & bolt in the right size drilled hole. I have used a power steering pump installer & also when I was building jeep parts hat required rivet nuts I made 2 pieces of plate, one had one hole in the center for the bolt to rivet nut then the other had 3 holes,2 of which were tapped so all I had to do was tighten the 2 bolts to expand it.
