How do I install rivets?

How do I install rivets?

Hi everyone

I'm trying to install a Dinan intake. The snorkel is fastened to the air box with rivets.

The rivets that came with the intake are sleeves with a flange on one end and small pin running through the sleeve's opening. I thought pushing the pin through the sleeve would flare the sleeve, but it didn't. What am I supposed to do to these things so they fasten the two pieces?

You need a special tool to install the rivets, maybe 15 to 20 $
