H&B Crashbar install help!

After much huffing and puffing I am done installing my new H&B crashbars except for one part, I can't seem to get the brace bar tightened well. Is there a trick? I have a fold out allen wrench set which doesn't seem to fit well, especially with one hand turning and the other holding the nut in place... any suggestions would be great, thanks!

Mine went on without a hitch.

One tip might help, get all the bolts located and loosely tighten first before you torque them up. Instructions tell you to do it in a certain order as well, but can't remember what was first.

Just remember, it could be worse. You could have been sent two left guards after waiting 5 weeks for them like I did.
