The special tool is basically the same, but uses a thick walled tube
instead of the socket. A long bolt takes the place of the students, with a
nut on it to force the tube down, forcing the clip over a conical piece,
widening it a bit so it goes over the cylinder. Winding it in fully locates
it in the groove.

Orientation of the clip is important too, as it holds the cylinder far
better if the concave side is facing outwards, and if the opening in the
clip is facing up it will cover the bleed nipple hole.

But then through bitter experience we all knew that already.

You can get a special tool for putting the circlip on but I improvise
with a socket, a stud that screws into the cylinder, a nut at the
other end and washers as required. You need to loosen the hydraulic
pipe at the other end and swing it out of the way. The socket forces
the circlip over the slave cylinder inlet.

I don't want a "user experience" - I just want stuff that works.
