How do I assemble panels using the Releasable Connection Set?

In the releasable connection set, there are the following three parts; 1 x permanent housing, 1 x releasable housing (green) and 1 x releasable connector.

Typically, the releasable housing goes into the fixed or stationary panel whereby the secondary panel can be pushed on to or slid into place. The permanent housing and the releasable connector are inserted into the secondary panel. The protruding end of the releasable connector must be in alignment with the holding part of the releasable housing.
