Default Carbine Stock escutcheon replacement

Can anyone tell me what the proper way to remove and replace (being the reason for this thread) a carbine stock escutcheon without cracking the stock? I have a stock that I now have to repair because I thought this would be simple, and it didnt quite work out as I hoped

Tips on pinning a cracked stock may be helpfull also.

For the couple stocks I picked up that didn't have one installed, I matched the serrations in the stock to the ones on the replacement nut, pressed in as far as I could with my thumb, then used a block and *light* hammer taps until it seated as far as it would go. Slow, but it gets there.
After installing the recoil plate, gently/slowly tightening the screw pulled the nut in the rest of the way.

No splits and no damage under the recoil plate.

A washer cut from a piece of cardboard or leather. The hole the size of the nut.
A tube with inside dia. greater than outside dia. of recoil plate bolt nut.
A stack of metal washers to take up the remaining distance to the underside of a recoil plate bolt.
Start the recoil plate bolt into the nut from the bottom with all the above.
As the bolt pulls the nut out, the washer puts equal pressure around the nut to keep the wood from pulling away with the nut and crack.
I have done this many times.
