How to use the vertical M.2 mounting bracket?

I'm trying to build my system and I'm stumped by that vertical M.2 mounting bracket. There's a little plastic doohickey that holds the drive and the pictures seem to show something that can't be done (neither end of the plastic can be passed through the hole) and there is no verbage.

How do I put this crazy thing together??

Is this what you're talking about? Looks like the plastic part passes through and rotates then the cap part pops off to seat the drive then snaps on.

A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station…

That's the part in question but I see no way to pass it through the hole, both ends are larger than the hole.
