Put one of the sides in place in the canister then with your thumb use a bit of force to push the other end into it's slot, I have just done mine and was also aware that it may break but you only need a little force and it won't break. Anyway back to the cleaning, hope this solves your problem

The 2 small lugs have to click back into place and this is extremely difficult. One lug is longer than the other so insert this one into its socket. Then, with the lid in the fully open position force the smaller lug into its socket.  It does require considerable force and I was worried about breaking it but there is some flexibility in the plastic so it didn’t snap off.

Very helpful, especially your comment about the different sizes. I found I had to use a small flat headed screw driver to ease the ‘hinge’ back. It didn’t snap!
