You are quicker than me in getting the coupler assembled. I thought you did very well to get the spring placed before it went zinging onto the floor. If it is an MT coupler, I think it should have been lubricated with Greas-em, dry graphite lubricant, before assembly.
Also, if you are very careful, and want the lid to stay in place while you mount the coupler you can try quickly and gently touching each side with a soldering iron to cause the lid and body to bond (melt) together.

Thank you.
