Using the usual U shaped ones is easy - if the top ones are just loose
enough to rotate a bit then angle them at about 30degrees and then slide
the panel UP into them and then rotate the panel down and drop it into the
bottom clips.
You only need to lift the panel high enough to clear the bottom clips.
