i used the snap ring pliers to close the gap, and put about the back half of the ring into the seat (?) and then... carefully removing the pliers, the ring stayed in place.... but the front end stayed up... then i just eased the front end in place with my fingers.

it really is a poor design as far as installation/removal goes..... how the f' is that thing supposed to come off if i ever need to get a new hard pipe.
