I blindly followed the instructions and discovered it was impossible to insert the squeezer to install the six rivets above the handle. Guss at support confirmed the issue. I ordered some MK-319 blind rivets for those six locations.
Sounds like a good catch. For the benefit of us all have you communicated this to Van's?
