Wiper arm pivot post

What is the trick to getting the wiper arm fully back onto the pivot post? I thought that it would be simply pressing down but that is only getting the arm partway on and it's required a lot of effort to get it even partially on. I assume you should not be able to see the splined part once the arm is installed -- is that correct?

Yes, I know the paint needs to be removed from the pivot but I was having the same issue pre-paint so I am clearly not doing something correctly.

This tool is cheap and helps to keep it straight as Flade described. Also...yes the paint.

This link illustrates how the tool is used to grasp the wiper arm.
