How can I put these on my AR? It looks like they should either snap-on or slide on but I'm not making any progress with them.

Any suggestions from you gentlemen will be greatly appreciated.

They look exactly like this black one by Larue. They are 7" long and cover 17 rail slots. Colt included three of them.

The way I install them is took one side then just press hard with my thumb on the other side working my way from one end to the other and they usually will just "snap" right in place.

I did the same with mine. Once you get the first one in they should snap down pretty solid. Just press them in...
