Well you shouldn't be using your bare fingers.
Everyone has their own preferred trick. I put a small straight blade screwdriver in the hole, and then pop in the cage nut by hand using the screwdriver as a 'shoehorn'

Those cage nuts have such a tendency to slice through your finger pulp, I 
always thought their use should be restricted by international treaties. How 
cool is it to apply a lot of pressure with your fleshy finger on a very very 
very tiny metallic edge? Will it bend, will it pop? Damn, I hate those
