I'd grab a hole-saw kit from harbor frieght and drill it into the black cover.

Search around on this forum some, because I've seen some threads where people were using the square snap-in receptacles. Single square receptacles similar to the ones you find in many power strips. The cut the square hole to fit with a dremel tool and it snapped right in place. The receptacles even had a trim plate on the front which covered up the hole entirely.
