You just have to be tough with the bastard - the A1200 and silicon boards can take quite a bit of abuse without any harm.
Now I just lever my ram expansion into the socket with the handle of a knife, pushing against the side of the simm connecter - get in there son!
It makes a sickening crunch/snap sound as it latches on, but at least I know a good connection has been made.
