Fuel pump install difficult on 2003 Cavalier

I bought a new AC Delco fuel pump for my 2003 Cavalier but cannot seem to get it installed onto the top of the gas tank. The new pump is aligned but the retainer will not catch the tabs on the tank top even when the fuel pump is pushed onto the o-ring seal. The retainer is a SOB trying to get aligned and started. Anyone have suggestions how to get this retainer on. Trying to save on labor costs and do this myself.

Try bending the things on the metal ring then take a flathead n a hammer and tap it clockwise I think if I remember right I had to do the same thing
