Just a thought, would a well nut work in this instance esp as there is very little load? This would negate the need to buy the riv-nut tool.

Good shout that, my only concern would be, how to you stop it from turn when getting to the tightening point

When you start to tighten, the nut at the end of the rubber pulls up and sandwiches against the inside of the panel allowing it to be tightened properly (in a very similar manner that the riv-nut tool does with the rivet.
