Default Bending tabs on clutch lock washer

Anyone have a secret to getting the tabs on the lock washer (on the clutch, but there's a similar one on the front sprocket) moved into the right position (against the edge of the nut)?

They're easy to bend when they're off the quad but I can't figure out a good way to bend the edges when the nut is tightened on it.

I bent it as far as I could while it was off just leave enough clearance for the nut to turn then when the nut was on I put a screwdriver on the bend and tapped down on the screwdriver shaft until it was down...hope that helps hard to explain wish I had pics
