Has anyone else had extreme difficulties trying to install these? I can't seem to get the squared side in much at all. Is there something I'm missing?

This is a problem that comes with some PCB batches, when the coating is thicker.
What we do in this case is insert the pins upside down, solder from the top side of the PCB and cut the sharp end above the ring.
