Can't fit an SD card - why?

My wife bought an SD card for her Kindle and the description said it was suitable for a Kindle fire, but it will push in, but not lock - what could be the problem please?

Quite possibly user error, they are a) fidderly, and b) need a good push a long way into the slot,that requires long nails or very thin fingers, or a very thin screw driver. they are even worse to get out, see if you can get someone who is used to doing it to put it in, the nearest 14 yo, should do it with ease,,,, even if you pay a shop cocouple of quid to do it
