Paul from SWISCO responded:
I'm afraid there isn't any tool made to roll in vinyl glazing. Glaziers just use their hands. When installing vinyl snap in, we always start at the bottom. Some manufacturers built a ledge for the glass to rest on that makes a space so you can slide the snap in under the glass. If not, you can set the glass in the open framed with a small vinyl shim to raise the glass slightly so you can slide the snap in under the glass.
