Is there a way to put it on without the special wrench that I'll probably never need again? Or do I just need to bite the bullet and order one?
It's best to suck it up and get one. I'd say it's better to get specific tools for each part than one of the "all in one" tools. They tend to be good enough at everything instead of being great at what you want.

I have one of those and it works fan-fucking-tastic. The only gripe that I have about that wrench: If you are using a magpul ASAP plate, it will not lock up on all three notches, only two and you risk stripping the castle nut. I, luckly, didn't strip mine, but it is a possibility. For regular locking plates though, it is an awesome tool to have.
