Advice installing remodel canister lights

I am installing 2 remodel canister lights. Everything is wired up and ready to go except I can't get the clips to snap down.

Both lights are Halo 6" remodel canisters. My sheetrock is 1/4 inch and I checked for obstructions around the edge. Each can has 4 clips. I was able to get 2 of the 4 in.
The instructions tell you to press up and pound a screwdriver up with a hammer. Again this worked for 2 but I can't get the rest to work. I looked online and it sounds like bending the clip so there is more (or even less) of a gap is suggested. I tried both without any luck.
Does anyone know of a trick for these?
