Need to make holes on these spring hinges but not sure what to do...

I have been wanting to attach these spring hinges onto a part to make a fully merged assembly but I cannot sketch on them in order to form a center hole.


Forming this center hole would be what is needed to formally attach them to the screw holes I have created on top of my part.


What should I do now, put holes on the actual part or continue attempting to make holes on my spring hinges.


Now, the spring hinges are no longer formal assemblies, as they used to be, but faces because I saved them as parts so that they could be scaled accordingly to the size of my part.

The hole types are CSK for M2 Flat Head Machine Screw.


Thank you for any help you may offer!
