Thanks Chuck!  I've always struggled with those things trying to get them on by guess and by golly.  It makes me wonder though, how did the telephone people get them on?  Did they use a special tool?

Here is a link to another tread on this topic.  

I also included a photo of the tool I was assigned and one I often used because it was easier.  

I meant the getting the tabbed support doo-dad properly installed on the open-center finger wheels.  You use a magnet, what did phone personnel use?  As for the finger wheel removal, safety pin works much better than paper clips.
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.
