Need help sketching this clip

I'm trying to re-create this clip from the picture shown into solidworks. I have all of the clip drawn except for the holes to be drilled and the 'pressed out helix' section for the holes. IMAG0572.jpg


Basically, a screw will go through the clip and will be made of some sort of steel. The metal part in the bottom is about the only physical reference I have to get this done. I attached the current solidworks file that I have completed thus far.


I tried to sketch a helix and then run a swept boss/base on it to give me that shape but it doesn't seem to be working at all. I'm at a loss here now and can't figure this thing out for the life of me. I'm pretty new to the program so I apologize if this is a rookie question. Thanks for any help.
