Yep that about how it works, one came with the bed ladder racks I had in the PU. After yo drill the hole and place the rivet it just compresses the skirt on the rivet. Just like the smaller hand riveter looks like a pop rivet squeeze gun. Don't know if I can find the one from the pick up rack but will take a picture of the other setup/kit I have.
Been there, probably broke it, doing that!
