Once installed:

Use an Allen through the Socket, and a clamp on the socket, and vise grips on the Allen, and tighten.

+1. The nut should tighten properly once you have the strut assembly installed and the car on the ground.

If getting a 22 mm socket in there is the problem, Harbor Freight sells a 22 mm (7/8-inch) O2 sensor socket for a few bucks that you can sand down and fit in there quite well while counterholding with an allen key through the center.
