It takes a swift thump with my hand to get the center of mine to set in. It also helps to have a helper hold the window while I thump it.
Have a great day!

What year?

If it is a 70s with a J hinge you need to raise the window way up to engage the hinge.

Just a follow up, were you able to get them in? Mine need to be done, and I'm feeling a bit gun shy, or should I say window shy..
