For relidding, I have a modified $3 Officeworks clipboard. I've shortened it simply because it didn't need to be so long, and cut a hole in it for the circuits at the bottom of the chip to sit in so it sits flat.

The clamp is only a medium pressure, doesn't need to be particular strong. I actually chose it because the large clamp and medium pressure make it a lot easier than a more powerful clipboard clamp. I simply lift the clamp, slide the CPU+IHS under it until it drops into the hole, and gently let it close. 20 minutes is sufficient time for bathroom silicon to get sufficient grab to install on a board.
