Homeline circuit breaker installation

I installed new HOMELINE breaker.

I hooked the plastic end first and pushed the breaker onto the busbar.

How hard or how much force should it get to clamp down on the bus?

Like when it snaps into place is that good enough or are you supposed to forcefully push down on it?

I assume they just snap and don't have a pressure or torque value like the screw?

I have found aluminum bus panels will require more force to seat a breaker then a cooper bus panel will. The end result should be as John describes it.
