Mounting flash disks with custom umask

I've got a flash disk that is automounting great.  However, it's a vfat 
filesystem and I've got ssh keys stored on it, which means ssh complains about 
the file permissions not being 0600.  If I mount the drive manually from the 
console with umask=077, then ssh is happy.  

How can I make KDE mount either just this flash drive (ideally) or all flash 
drives with a umask of 077?

Alternatively, can someone describe how KDE mounts a disk?

I'm running KDE 4.5 on Maverick.
