These can be easily inserted into plastic parts by heating a soldering iron to around 190C (374F) and pressing the tip through the hole and into the plastic. If you have a short stubby tip that would work best so you don’t poke through the hole and into the plastic directly. To make the connection even stronger try putting the insert on the other side of the object instead of the face. This can greatly increase the strength of the connection dramatically.
