Opened my laptop to replace something, but now I can't lock the keyboard ribbon back in place.

I was wondering if there was any way to do it right... the way it locks in involves using this small little clip that somehow attaches the ribbon to the input.

The ribbon can be inserted on its own, but its too loose.. which is why I assume they used this little clip.

If you guys know what I'm talking about, is there a way to do it properly or a video tutorial? Because I've been at it for a freaking hour and I'm about to lose it.

Thanks in advance.
