I put one on my truck last week and, yes, it was a might stubborn starting out. This I overcame by simply backing everything out, and getting all fasteners inserted from the middle outward - and barely yet evenly started again. Then I gradually tightened them (evenly) until they all became snug.

I got it as an early Christmas present from my folks when I visited at Thanksgiving. I didn't have any major troubles installing it. The thing to remember is to put the screw in place and before turning anything, bang the screwdriver with the heel of your hand to seat the screw deep enough in the socket for the threads to grab. Otherwise you'll be turning the screw for nothing.

I think I seated the outer two, plus a couple of turns, then worked from the middle out seating and tightening the rest before returning to fully tighten the outer ones. I've been impressed with how strong those plastic screws hold at 70 mph with a cross wind.

they were a little difficult to line up the outer ends but they all went in.
i'm digging the look of it on there.
