I hear you about putting in the screws. You don't want to drill too big of a hole, so you end up having to tap them into the hole...big pain in the ***.
Only 3 screws in the heel worked for you? If that's the case I may just go with that, or just make an additional hole in the frame mount a tad further back so I get more sole contact. Think that would work?
I tell you what, those RMS screws aren't cheap but I wonder if just plain old flathead screws and nuts wouldn't be any better? Wouldn't sacrifice any strength that's for sure.
