Replaced Screen home button contacts do not line up

I have sucessfully peeled the home button contacts off my old display and transferered them to the new display. My issue is the 2 home button contacts do not line up with the prongs on the lightning connector.

To test i peeled the contacts back off the display and set them on the prongs and home button worked. They just will not line up once i pop screen back on.

NEED ADVICE/TIPS??

Answer this question I have this problem too
