Zalman CNPS7500-Cu issues with second latch on LGA 1155

I'm having difficulty with the second clip on my Zalman CNPS7500-Cu. How much force is necessary on LGA1155? I feel like I'm going to break something! I got everything set up on my ASUS P8Z77-M PRO motherboard (backplate, mounting bracket, screws, thermal paste, etc.), and it clears everything from what I can tell. I am just afraid that I am trying too hard to squish down my second latch...there is a LOT of force needed just to get down to the latch. Can anyone help? I'm so frustrated!

Sorry to bump, but just wondering if anyone has any idea about the clip?

If not, can someone let me know if a lot of strength is usually required to secure a CPU fan? Thanks! Right now I have the stock fan installed and my temps are high...I do not feel comfortable with it.
