Your parts store has it all wrong.
Some rear disk brake equipped vehicles require what they suggested, but only ones where the parking brake is shared with the caliper/pads.
Our Santa Fe's use a parking brake "drum" system built into the hat of the rear rotors.
If you're only changing pads, you'll be good to go. It's not fun when you have to change the rear rotors. Well atleast it wasn't for me!
I used a a "C Clamp" with an old brake pad - this works fine.
Removing the rear rotors often requirers a three jaw puller and patience.
