Attaching Glass Stops

When attaching glass stops in a frame or door, I like to drill a starter hole for the brads or screws. Problem is, with the glass in place there's not enough clearance for me to position my drill bit where it needs to be, just above the plate of glass. So I came up with a way to drill the holes just before I install the glass.

The trick is to temporarily use a narrow strip of glass to position the stop. Now I can maneuver my drill where it needs to be to make the hole. After I've drilled all the holes, I put the final glass in place and tack or screw the stops in place.
