I drilled mine and also added these to turn the base stations off when I'm not using them. They work really well and I would suggest everyone with a vive to buy a set.

I just ordered 3 of these:
Adjustable Clamp Mount Jaws Clip Arm Neck Tripod with 27.5" Gooseneck Extension and Mount
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WJRO5M6/?tag=tec06d-20

Currently two sensors are standing on a book shelf while the rear sits on a stand that I have to move and put away when not using the Rift. Using these goose neck clamps I will be able to adjust the front sensors to a much better angle and the rear sensor will be clipped to a metal rail up towards the ceiling. (My game room / home theater is in a converted garage and the garage door rail is where I want to mount the 3rd sensor)
