New Hella E codes Loose

I installed a set of the Hella ecodes last night and they are loose in the bucket. I've tightened them down as best I can and still they wiggle around.
I tried doing a search for that but nothing came up.
Has anyone else with these housing had this problem...if so how did you fix?

TIA

Make sure they are seated properly in the buckets. There are slots and tabs that align them

Ensure the screw tabs on the retaining rings are not bent inward. If anything, make sure they are bent up and away from the housing so they tighten up to the bucket.

Make sure they are seated correctly. Mine were a pain in the butt to get seated right while screwing the retaining ring in place.
