Getting the lock pin back on after replacing the front brake pads

I just replaced my front brake pads, and am having a pretty tough time getting the lock pin to slide back onto the pad pin. I tried holding the pin with both needle-nose and regular pliers, but it slips to an angle every time I apply strong pressure. Suggestions? I don't want to just keep hacking away at it, because I'm afraid I'll damage the lock pin.

You guys are great, BTW. I haven't yet had a KLR repair/maintenance question I couldn't get answered here.
