Dumb sun visor install Q

Maybe Iím just not strong enough. Go easy on me, Iím a girl. I donít know. I had to order new visor brackets and Iím good to go on getting the visors on thanks to a tip in another thread from Grumpy Old Man about using white lithium grease to lube up the rod and to twist the rod clockwise while pushing it into the visor. Works like a charm.
So. Now I gotta do the second visor and I realize Iím gonna have two visors for the same side of the truck. It looks like I can maybe push the rod down into the base of the bracket (thereís a spring on the backside) and spin it around so it faces the other way, and boom, passenger side visor. BUT... my twigs for arms can only get the rod to wiggle and if thatís not what itís supposed to do I really donít wanna screw it up. Iím about to get my teenage son to do this for me and he has no problem using his muscle or breaking something in the process. Am I on the right track?

Install the visor on your truck then try spinning it around
That will make it easier for you to manage

I have repainted my arms and put new visors on them a long time ago

I bought some used ones of of the parts forum and they were super stiff. I propped them up upside down and soaked them with WD-40 overnight. the next morning they were super easy to turn any direction you wanted.
