You can sure try - go for it!

If you have a sheet metal punch, or Big Bite (I think), you might be able to do it my way. Just remove the wire shank, and punch a hole in the back. Use a brass fastener, and cut a piece of cardboard to size (it prevents the fastener from moving around). You'll have to cut a slit in the pusher to accommodate the fastener, though.
