You need to connect pin 1 to pin 10 on the joycon connector (on the Switch) to enter the RCM mode.
https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/user_guide/emummc/entering_rcm/
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.
