    I think your going to have to move it but I could be wrong. I'm sure on of the pros will be by later and prove me wrong.

    What is it drilled in to? I hope I can access the top of the screw. I'll have to take a closer look tomorrow.

    No chance of moving that stud over a little?
    Would a lock ring from a 1-1/2" EMT box connector work?

    Remove that sink clamp and unthread the bolt.... or just silicone the button into the hole.
