    I used a set of external snap ring pliers to spread them open a little bit. I could not get them on either like they were. If you don't have the pliers you might put them in some hot water to soften them up.

    I knelt under the ski and used my knee to push up on the bottom of the fin and hold it up while I snapped them in. 1/2" plastic pipe 1-7/8 long works fine too.
