Aquarium lid assembly help

I've had good luck running the plastic under hot water or hitting it with a hair dryer to loosen things up a bit. Typically, I'll start with one side and sort of wiggle it until it's at least partially on across the length of the lid. Once the edge is on I'm usually able to just slide it home. Just take it slow and steady.

Thank you for your thoughtful reply. I will give heating it up a try!

I dip the edge of the plastic in water, get the glass started in there, then turn it all sideways and tap it on the floor until the plastic is as far up as I want it.  Takes less than a minute.  

Well that certainly sounds easier than what I had to do. Heating it up helped but I still yelled and screamed at. I have one more kid to do. I shall try your method on that one.

This way was my most successful attempt!  I never would have guessed those things would kick my rear the way they did!
