Answer: 
You can use a small piece of plank and fit the tongue side into the groove and tap into place. You will use a number of these account they don't hold up very well.

Answer: 
No. With vinyl flooring, the right tool for the job is the tapping block. The price of this tool is so reasonable, you will be glad you bought it. The design of this tool protects the tongue and grooves in the flooring. You will damage the flooring if you "improvise".

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Allure tapping block Aggravating allure flooring is extremely difficult for a diy. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by You need this. I don't usually do reviews, but I decided to do one on this tool to help others. I can't imagine doing the job without this tool. You need this to eliminate the gaps for a tight and professional finish. I had first hesitated spending the extra $10 bucks to get this, but glad I eventually bought it. It is designed specifically so that when you tap on it the edge of the plank does not get damaged. Even if you are doing just one small room, get this and get it done right. Notice my white tapping block on the top right of the attached pic. I am an IT guy and not well versed in home improvement. But with the Allure Ultra and this wonderful little tool I am ready to tackle the other two bedrooms as soon as HD has another good deal on this flooring. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must have tool This tapping block is a must have tool to properly install Allure ultra click and lock. I used to use a piece of plank to fit into the groove to tap the plank into place. May 24, 2016
