Replacing the nuts that hold the air cleaner down

Ok, the part I'm talking about is under the air cleaner housing. Theres a rubber mount with a bolt going through it. There are some nuts missing that hold the air cleaner down. I can't seem to find a way to get those little buggers on. What tools or methods have some of you used for the same job?

All the rubber air cleaner mounts I've seen have a flat washer with a screw protrusion molded onto two sides of the rubber mount.

Once you attach the 3 rubber mounts on the air cleaner bracket by tightening the 3 nuts on the bottom, the air cleaner is placed on the 3 mounts with the top screws of the mount going thru the 3 holes in the air cleaner and the nuts are then tightened from the top.
