My latch clips don't line up either . . .
So I've taken a pen to mark (bottom clip) where it need to go to have the lock tab come thru . . .
The extra hole may be OK to see.
For me it's not a sell . . .
Small rivets are generally 1/8" diameter . . . test drill on an old piece of metal.
Pop rivets work by expanding and won't hold securely if the hole's to big.
If it's tight and you need to work/spiral it in then you have the perfect size hole.
Pop rivets aren't water proof . . . so if going where a leak won't be wanted in the future put a dab of sealant on it. (tooth pick to push some in the middle of the hole may help too ; )
