I think he used RCA jacks because the plug doesn't need much depth. A 1/4" TRS jack will need an inch or more behind the panel it is mounted on. If you absolutely insist on using 1/4" jacks, you will probably have to mount them on some kind of L-shaped bracket so that the plug lies parallel with the backplate instead of plugging in perpendicular to the surface.
