Did you use the "plastic pins" for low now?

NF P12s have it and it`s for less vibration and maybe movement

I know that old problem. Usually my needle-nosers could get into an area where the long end of the vibration isolator would protrude. Then I could grab the end and pull it far enough to snap into place.

 

Another approach is the double-ended vibration isolator:

 

Double-ended vibration isolators.

 

I got these from Cooler Guys.

 

But these days I try to buy things like this from SVC because of the free shipping. And sure enough, they have some too.

 

Basically, you mount the pegs on your fan, then place the fan so the short ends stick through the case, Then you can pull the ends from the outside of the case. The problem I had with them is that they would rip rather than pull out. Even when I lubed them, pulling them out often, sometimes usually ended with destroyed pegs. So if I bought more I would go for SVC, just to see if my experience was different.

These are great. Make life so much easier. But you would have to accept them ether sticking out the case or have something covering them, in other words, the don't suit every case.

Yes. They don't suit every case. But for me, they stuck out the back of my case, facing the wall, under a shelf. No one ever saw them but me. <shrug>
