haha I just had this same dilemma yesterday, was driving me crazy!! That is the only thing I hate about the DFC on the 450. It took me a while to get mine on yesterday. What I did was took a heat gun and carefully heat the plastic up, just slightly enough to get it to expand and then using some pressure was able to screw it on. It still was a pita but I finally got it on there.

Now, this topic was just brought up in another forum as well and someone made a pretty good suggestion that I am going to go try. He used a cordless drill, put the metal piece with the threads in the drill bit and slowly screwed it into the plastic link. I thought that was a pretty good idea and will give it a try on the spare links I bought.

I just tried it for the first time, worked perfect for me. I put the metal threaded part in the drill then just simply screwed it into the plastic ball link while holding it firmly and applying a little pressure. They went right in, I was able to do 4 of them in about 2 minutes, wish I used this method a long time ago!
