    I insert them all the way until the point that got stuck I thought they were installed but there are two clips still visible...

    Do I need force them or bend them so the pipes go all the way? How do you did it?

    Hahaha Bez. I would say they need lining (turning) up as they don't look rite to me but I think you may have to just ease them in as you knock them on maybe just a flat blade to push the clips down as you go will be awkward but I'm sure you will manage ;)

    The clips shouldn't be visible or gripping the original pipes. They are meant to stick between and grip like that.

    That's what I was trying to get across lol they will be a pig to get positioned all at the same time when it's pushed on though won't it?

    Thanks for the replies guys, in order to put them in place I had to bend a couple of clips with a screwdriver...
    Had to use a lot of force to put them in place but now they look awesome...

    I had that trouble. But with a bit of force they slide in nicely without any need of bending clips
