Our manufacturing process does allow us to consistently place holes into parts without creating plastic shavings which are considered small parts per the toy safety industry standard for USA. We instead provide location points for screws as shown in the product instructions. The metal screws are self-tapping and when a downward pressure or force is applied onto screw with driving in with screwdriver, they will drive into the plastic and create their own hole. This would be the same or true of driving screws into a wood board without a hole. If needed or preferred, you can use a small nail with a hammer and pound a nail in a bit to create starter hole and then take out install screw. A power screwdriver or rechargeable drill can also be used to aid installing screws but we do not always recommend as driving screws in too far can strip out the plastic and cause other damage.
