On my TR3a there were two spire nuts engaged into the slots on both side to take the screws for the grab handle. You can see them in this under-dash picture.

It's exactly as Stan states.  Note that the spire nuts may be underneath any new dash capping, as in these images of my car during restoration.

IIRC, the screws are a little unusual -- almost an Acme thread.
