You need to connect pin 1 to pin 10 on the joycon connector (on the Switch) to enter the RCM mode.

Maybe first check if you Switch is unpatched. If it is patched, you can't run CFW anyway so no need for a jig.

MacGuyver would like to recommend a paperclip. If you have steady hands and be carefull, that does actually work.
But a jig goes for a dollar on Aliexpress (if you can wait that long)
On Amazon they are also just a few dollars.
You could ask someone with a 3Dprinter to print one.
For injecting the payload you can use a PC or Rekado on a Android phone (with USB-OTG).

There is a list of community suggestions for items that can be used to enter RCM found in this thread.
