You slide the ring over fuel filter between the end of the fuel line and the filter with the long side towards the fuel line (IIRC) and press it inside the ring at the end. There is a spring inside that holds the filter in place that needs to be expanded by the tool so it will let loose.

There really isn't anything else you can use to do the job; at least... nothing I'm aware of.

Yeah, the one in the video I already had and used on my a/c when I rebuilt it but it didn't have a small enough "circle" for the fuel filter. I had to buy the $10 plastic kit at autozone (like in the link) to get the right size; it was either the light blue or gray one in the package.
