How do I put together vent pipe?

I bought pipe from Home Depot for a dryer vent. I was able to click together 2/3 of the pipe but cannot get the rest. This is the pipe that has a tonge and grove. Any tricks?

Yes there is, now I suppose you want me to tell ya right? LOL LOL

OK slightly overbend the joint deeper as you lock it together, second if what you are describing doesnt co-operate look carefully at the joint it could have a bent corner or mishapen edge, which is common, if so finger or flat pliers like electrical lineman will fix it. Push down and into the joint and it will snap in

Keep your composure and take a deep breath and as stated above, inspect for bent edges etc.
