Trick to installing valve retainer clips

On a dohc zetec head, when doing a valve job and reseating your valves. Is there a trick to making it easier to reinstalling the valve retainer clips. Those stupid little 2 bushings i fought for hours to just get a couple put back on. Even with a valve spring compressor. No matter how i tried it or no matter what i thought of they just did not want to seat easily. they would always fall the wrong way or move once you tried to release the spring. So you guys that rebuild heads alot whats the trick?
