It takes time and practice. Just make sure you do it inside of a baggy so when it goes flying you don't lose it.

well I just learned something. I usually just buy extras cause I know I am going to lose a couple during the process. I guess I will just stock up on plastic bags.

I usually just grab the end sticking towards the middle with a small pair of pliers and roll them into the slot.
