I'm installing my new Tone Zone humbucker pickup into my guitar but I didn't realize how hard it would be. I dont know if I'm making it harder than it seems.?

I googled and youtubed everything I could think of.

So how do I screw the mounting ring to the pickup with the spring and everything? I cant seem to hold the spring compressed while threading the screw onto the pickup.

How do you do it?

Thanks

Got it!

But now I realized the single pickup wont fit into the routed area. The Dimarzio Fast Track has this little plastic part that come off on the bottom of the bar where the wires come off. (so it makes a trapezoidal shape) But the single pickup spot is only straight edges...

as opposed to this shape.
