Aluminum double-hung - trouble re-installing window shashes

Is there any tricks to getting an aluminum window sash back in place? I'm having trouble getting the pins in place. I can get the pin in place on one side, but am having difficulties aligning the opposite pin in place.

Thanks!

Got a picture so we can see what your dealing with? There's lots of different style windows.
Are you holding the sash at a slight angle?

One shoe must be positioned higher than the other and that will allow the pivot bar go into the shoe. That's the slight angle joecaption1 mentions.
