You must have tiny hands. My hands don't come close to fitting.

Put the bulb in ass end first then once you get it in the receptacle use your pointer fingers like chopsticks to rotate it into locked position

Lol no I don't im 6'4" but there is a position where you can get A thumb and index finger in there to get a GOOD ENOUGH grip on it...one side is tougher than the other unless your ambidextrous...also you've got to use your other hand to hold the wire to hold the bulb in place once you get it positioned right then use the other hand to twist to line it up and twist to tighten
