Trans 722.6 Dipstick

OK, guys, what am I doing wrong?
Car is 1996 S500 Coupe. Bought the trans fluid checking tool (a dipstick!) and the little pins that hold the cap on.
Got the cap off OK. Manual says push the "tool" in until is stops. I did this but seems like the tool bottoms out in the pan before the tool is seated at the top of the tube. I pulled the tool out, the fluid level is way above the top of the black section where the level marks are.
Car was stone cold.
What am I doing wrong? Is the tool supposed to have a stop somewhere on it? Seems like its going in way too far.
Thanks, KenP
