Here's a trick I used.........Take your snap ring/ snap ring pliers........take handles of snap ring pliers and insert into a vise, now carefully close the vise and expand your snap ring.....I say carefully as ya have to make sure pliers don't fly out of the vise and your snap ring then goes flying...oh yeah eye protection is recommended. Now with vise closed and snap ring expanded......take a few zip ties and secure them around the handles of your pliers....it takes a few ties as that snap ring is pretty strong. Now when you open the vise...voila....your pliers and snap ring are held open. You can now insert/guide the snap ring into position with one hand and use a screw driver to help line it up with the groove.....Once lined up with the groove in the axle......you simply hold it there with one hand....and with other hand you take some cutters and cut the zip ties......bammo snap ring is in position.....
