Default INS Air filter - having the hardest time installing!

Hi all, I'm new to 1/8 onroad running a .21 engine and I'm having the hardest time putting the air filter on to the carb vent.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how to do it?

Every time I try to put it on, the rubber collapses on itself and merely folds into the air filter itself.

Thanks for any assistance!

Put a little liquid on the connector , alcohol or good old spit will do , and hook one edge and stretch over instead of trying to push staight on.

check to make sure that the oil filter is fitted into the INS box.

I first had this problem before, only to realize the rubber part wasn't putshed into the plastic far enough and locked down.
