I agree with northwoodsman, you need to take the existing plate off of your router before you mount it to the Rockler router plate, then you should be able to use the screws that came with your router to attach it to the router table plate. As for bolting it to the table there is no need to do that, neither of mine have holes to bolt them down.

Also a router lift is a great option, but if your router plate is one of the basic sizes then you can always add a lift later. As I did I then routed an opening in my table saw extension and stuck the router plate with the fixed base in there.

So if you plan on adding a lift make sure to use the correct size of router plate now so that later on you just lift the router plate out and drop the router lift in. Hope this makes sense.
