Default I'm sure I can get this retainer clip in... but how??

https://www.rockauto.com/getimage/ge...2FCIR113-1.jpg

This type of retainer clip came with my timken wheel bearing.

How the F do I put it in??? You have to squeeze it together and pop it in the hub. How can you squeeze it when it has no where to grab?

My old one looked like this

and I just used a pair of C-clamp pliers. Easy.

I'm confused

*EDIT* For now I just put the old retainer clips back in. One fit nicely, one is every so slightly bent and won't go all the way back in. It is definitely capable of keeping the bearing in place (That *****er took 6 tons of force to move into place... Really don't think it's going anywhere) but I want a new one in there to be sure.

...
At this point... Feel like I've had to do everything but replace the engine.

Re-using the old clip is fine.

You see how both sides have a notch cut out? Start at the bottom of the clip.
Use a flat blade screwdriver to finish it. It really doesn't get any easier.
