With the rubber cushion fully snapped in place, you can now push the tabs at each end into place under the hinge. The easiest way to do this is to pick up the headphones as pictured and pull the hinge off of the headband just enough to expose the groove that the tabs should be in, then press them in one at a time using your thumb. Repeat this process for all 4 rubber tabs making sure that you push the hinge back on to the headband all the way after securing the tabs.
