Is that what you're referring to? What exactly are you trying to shove into what? (no profane answers, children. We're all thinking it.)

are you talking about the female connectors fitting over the prongs inside the clip? if so loosen up the connectors with some needle-nose pliers

they only fit in one direction. you must make sure the crimped end the holds the insulation down isn't too large. they click when they are in place.
