Need help with swing arm caps

I need some advice from someone who has installed new swing arm caps. I ordered a pair from Ron Ayers, and they seem to be the correct ones, but I can't get them on. They fit the opening, but when I push them all the way in they pop back out. Any suggestions?

I just replaced mine too. Had the same thing happen when I was trying to put them in by hand. I got a rubber mallet, and tapped them in (I also put a dab of silicone on them to keep them from popping off again), and then held them in place for a couple of minutes. So far so good they're still there!

Thanks MikeS

I'll use a little more force. I was already ready with the silicone.
