Question How Do I Replace Hood Star?

Okay, this is going to sound, well not quite dumb, but almost. Bought a replacement hood star today to replace the one vandals broke. How do I install it? Insert and twist? If so, which way? Righty tighty?

While twisting/playing/messing around with it in my hand, the black spring steel that clamps the base pinched my finger... Took me a while to reposition it.

TIA,
--Craig

Or this thread may help too, complete with pictures. The pics are from a 126, in answer to a 123 question, should be about the same for a 124.

Took forever to find the link.
