If you cant push on by hand use a pair of multi grips .

Me?
I use mole grips.
I takes a bit of fiddling to get them set to the right size but your not trying to clamp on just close up so it closes the connector.
Or slip jaw pliers work well but more awkward.
And now and then I'll put a cable tie on to kind of hold the joint aligned.
But your right they can be a right pain.
