install question for Adventuretech gps/phone mount

Hey all, if you have installed the Adventuretech gps/phone mount to your windshield, did you buy longer screws, or use the OEM ones? I installed the gps/phone mount to my 2017 DL650 this morning, but with the additional width of the gps/phone mount, the little rubber "bolt" that screws on to the 4 windshield mounting screws after you have attached your windshield and gps mount to your bike no longer fit because there is not enough screw protruding.

So my options are:
1. ride around with the screws tightened but no bolt holding them on the opposite side (how secure is that??)
2. buy longer bolts that will allow me to screw on the little rubber "bolt" to the end of the screw.

If you have this gps mount, what did you do, and how is it working?

It's a beautiful sunny day in Central PA today- we'll hit high 50's- and I want to get out for a ride. Don't want my windshield falling off or even worse, falling off and knocking me out. That would kind of suck.

Much obliged as always, for your help.

UPDATE: The gentleman who runs Adventuretech promptly responded to my query, and assured me that option #1 is A-OK, and not to worry about the little "bolts". Awesome.
