The most important thing is to make sure the case is lined up correctly in the upper slots and the lower tangs are also properly seated on the rubber mount. If all is well on those 3 points you will feel a snap as you described which is a caming action of the lock mechanism. Good luck, Bill
Quick question, is it normal for there to be a significant resistance and eventual 'snap' in the last 1/3 rd or so of the side case handle travel when installing the cases? It seems as if it could be damaging to the mechanism on both install and removal but if you tell me it's all good I'll move on.

You might consider this MOD as well. Riding year round had it's challenges relating to your issue. Mine was grit and sand finding it's way into the moving parts. This solved it nicely.
+1 on this mod! I had one case that was almost jammed. Got it cleaned out and working well, but didn't want it to happen again. Since using this mod, I haven't had the problem reoccur.
