don't waste your $$$, try a home made one like this instead: Poor man’s riv-nut tool: o One 8mm socket head bolt 8mm-1.25x40 o 8mm nut with one side marked as an index point o 8mm washer o 6mm Metric hex (allen) wrench • There are only 2 riv-nuts in the install at the rear brackets in an outboard frame hole (must have been an engineering oversite all others used are factory threaded). BTW all OEM kit nuts and bolts for this install use a 13mm wrench and/or socket. • Thread the 8mm nut onto the socket head bolt, then the 8mm washer. Next thread on the RivNut so the bolt is fully thread onto it.
Snug the 8mm nut and washer against the Rivnut
Place the Rivnut into the frame hole, holding it firmly in place with the Hex wrench. 
Take a 13mm wrench and while watching that index mark, tighten the 8mm nut 3 complete turns. 
Then back off the index nut and unscrew the socket bolt.

Great tool! Although you will need a large box wrench for it. Alternately, there are instructions online to accomplish the job using some simple hardwares.

Don't waste your money on the rivnut tool and don't waste your time on the DIY rivnut tool. The Only thing that works is removing one of the plugs next to the hole you want, tape a 1/4 inch nut/tooth washer combo to a piece of banding wire or coat hanger and fish it above the hole. thread a 1/4 inch bolt through the bracket while holding the wire with the other hand.its easy!! Throw those dumb rivnuts in the garbage where thy belong. Put the plug back. You may have to grind a couple of teeth off the tooth washer to fit it in the plu hole. As for the step boards- they are great!

I wasted my money on the "poor man's rivnut tool"...I just couldn't get it to work. Then I rented the 8mm Rivnut Tool and within minutes had the 2 rivnuts installed and secure.

I used a hommade rivnut tool and installed these runing boards in short order tonight. I used a bolt, nut, two washers with lube between them, a short bar with a hole drilled in it to keep the rivnut from turning, I put a rubber washer between the bar and rivnut. Worked like a charm.

Im sure the tool is great but a bolt, nut and washer work just fine to collapse the rivet. Took me ~15 min and cost $1.47.

The tool was pretty easy to use, the best is to watch a few youtube videos on the side steps installing and there are a few on how to install a rivnut using this tool. It's a little tight working from the pavement to where the rivnut needs to go, so give your self a little extra space to get the turns on the rivnut tool. I would recomend renting this tool and not try to make a homemade job or any of these other makeshift jimmy rigs. This Honda dealer is nice enough to rent this tool, none of the local ones in my area or where I got the truck would allow this type of rental. They want to charge an arm and leg to install something simple you can do yourself.

Honestly, I don't even know why they make this tool. I just used a bolt, a nut and two washers. Took about 2 minutes. Maybe if you had to put these on every day. The tool might be nice. Also I didn't use a crescent wrench. A closed box wrench fits nicely past the first bolt and onto the second and won't slip off.

Poor Man's rivnut tool works fine. I used a 6mm hex bit socket with my 1/2 drive ratchet to hold the socket head bolt. Also found that I had to hold the rivnut with a channel lock while snugging the nut and washer up to it..gave it maybe 1/8-1/4 turn.. prior to inserting rivnut into the frame. Otherwise the rivnut just turns with the nut instead of collapsing.
