Default Quick motor mount installation question

For those of you that have installed the competition motor mounts-

Currently I have the bolts that connect the mounts to the block on both sides torqued, and the nut that attaches the mount to the subframe on the drivers side torqued.

I was going to torque the subframe nut on the passenger side, and noticed that the stud on the motor mount hadn't slid down the whole day down the slit, and the little clip that is part of the mount was just barely seated inside the slit. However, the mount appears to be seated firmly against the subframe so I don't think it will easily move any further down.

Is this ok, or do I need to loosen everything and try a third time?

Loosen bolts, use pry bar, BFH and all the patience you can find.

Mine behaved the same way (every time the engine goes back in), the last part is the hardest.
