If they are Rivet- Nuts that you are setting, build your own tool using stacked washers, a bolt of the same size that you are setting the nuts for (but longer), and a nut that threads on to the bolt.

1 Take bolt and thread on the nut.
2 Add washers 6 or 8 should work.
3 Thread on rivet nut
4 Insert Rivet-Nut into hole
5 Hold Bolt with a wrench---do not turn!!!!
6 Spin nut down toward the Rivet-Nut----turning part!
7 Careful not to over-tighten

I have one you can borrow. What size nuts are you installing and for what purpose.

About a year ago I was faced with the same dillemma. I am a firm believer in owning the correct tools when you can afford them.

I needed a rivnut tool, found a good one and admittedly cringed a bit when I bought it.

BUT...the good news is I am using it quite a bit more than I ever dreamed I would.

If you don't own one you don't see the need for one, once you own one you really put it to use. Granted, I could live without it, and for the occasional use the stacked washers and bolt trick does work well, but if you're going to set a lot of them you ought to think twice about getting the tool (again...if you can afford it).

Good luck!

Matt,
I will take a look to see if I have the 10mm attachment arm. I used it to put 6mm to hold down my hard top. I will check tonight.

Matt, I can't tell you how tired I am of working on trucks.

If I could afford it I'd have a fleet manager and a mechanic.

I've been under the 80-inch this morning working on the PS pump, replacing rear tie rod and getting it ready for the summer.

Next I'll be working on the CrewCab getting the A/C pullies installed and belts tensioned. It's getting too warm to drive w/out either the windows down or the A/C blowing.

It NEVER ends.
