Mine ended up dismantled after it had been dropped. Couldn't get it back together until I read the bit about the tweezers /(pliers) and the white clips. It does not push in with out squeezing them first

The white C-ring with clips must be pushed down in order to reassemble device. Takes some time to practice.
