Help installing a clutch

I am installing a new OEM self adjusting clutch in my 05 ZHP with 6 speed transmission. I have a clutch alignment tool that came with the LUK clutch. When I use the tool to align the clutch disc and then put the pressure plate over it, there is no way to remove the alignment tool due to the removable locking plate. After watching some videos it seemed like I could remove this locking plate from the pressure plate and install. After doing this, the install went smoothly and everything looks aligned and set but I'm wondering if I really messed it up. Thanks for the help

The way it's supposed to be done is you mount the alignment tool, mount the pressure plate above that, remove the threaded rod from the alignment tool, and then remove the locking plate.
