When installing the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5G you will need a 3/8 inch allen wrench and a 1-1/8 inch wrench and torque wrench with a 3/4 inch 8pt socket. The cap screws need to be tightened down to 110 foot pounds. To make things even easier in your preparation I went ahead and attached images of the install manual below that you can take a look at.

I do absolutely agree that this is an excellent 5th wheel adapter that separates itself from most other options because of the interior polyurethane cushions that allow for a really smooth ride. I have also attached an install video that you can follow along with.
