Bought a boat, don’t know how to put it together

I just brought home an early model Alden 18 2x/1x, with the Oarmaster-I drop-in. Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how the spring clips that hold the drop-in to the hull work.

I see the little metal brackets that are molded into the hull. The unit sits on those. So far, so good. The spring clips go into the holes in the brackets, but I can’t figure out exactly how that works. There’s several possible orientations, none of which seem to make sense. Anybody have any close-up photos of an assembled one?
