Pressure to the Motherboard CPU Socket Cover, Still OK?

So I recently received my Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3 Mobo. Opened it up to have a little looksy. While overviewing the board, I touched the metal cap just to see if it was securely on. NOTE: It was still in its anti-static bag yet it was quite a lot of pressure. After doing this, i wriggled it left and right and it seemed to be fixed into position.

THIS IS A 1150 Socket, therefore, by my knowledge, the cover doesn't actually touch the pins but rests on the metal bracket.
Are any of the pins bent? Is it still okay?

Here is what the cover looks like
ONCE AGAIN, NOTE: It was in it's anti-static bag when touched and wriggled about. []

Everything should be fine.

Ok, just out of interest, how much pressure can this cover take?
