This is the easy part. You don't need a tool to re-install the clips. You push them into the groove in the end of the handles with your fingers until you can see the two lobes of the clip in the opening for the post. Once the clip is back in place in the handle, you can push the handle back on its post. If you replace the old clips with new clips, they are a little harder to put back in place, but the heaviest tool you will need is your thumbnail. When you push the handle back on, the clip springs apart and once it is down far enough on the post, the clip engages the groove and holds the handle in place. Make sure you have the handles in the right position before you fully seat the clips, or you'll be doing it all over again. This is what the clip looks like re-installed in the handle.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
