I’d use a “T” nut:

Hammer or pliers to flatten the spikes then drill your stripped hole out to the size of the OD of the T nuts threaded shaft.

Insert the T nut from the inside of the flange (might need to bend the flange outwards slightly).

Generally the tightening of the lock screw will put enough force on the T nut to keep it from spinning, but you could peen around the flange hole with a center punch to displace enough metal to better grab the nuts shaft.
