Drill is definetely the wrong word to use here.

The summer carpet mats have a velcro disc that holds it to the floor. The winter rubber mats have a disc with a hook that holds the mat in place. This issue is that mats are not designed (at least on my drivers side) with disc placement being the same.

On the passenger side, I used the same holes for both mats. On the driver's side I had to make two new holes for the winter mat.
***Again, this isn't drilling into the floorboard.***
It's basically applying enough force to screw the new disc through the carpet. If the plastic tip isn't sharp enough to pierce the carpet, just use a razor blade to poke a small hole.
