Upholstery panel clip for small hole?

The Auveco catalog's pretty daunting, so I'm hoping for a short cut and some help. I'm using 3mm Sintra board for a backing and need clips to mount it-but in several places, the width of the metal it will mount to is pretty narrow-no room for a 1/2" hole for the "Christmas trees". Are their similar clips that would work but in a 1/4" or possibly 5/16" hole"? Thanks

Au-Ve-Co 10780 or 12134 both go in a 1/4" to 5/16" hole in the door itself. The hole in the panel for the clip is 7/16" to 1/2". I used to use the 10780 all the time, but I like the 12134 a lot better now.

Thanks,Dan. That makes more sense.
