E5396A soldering

I am trying to use E5396A soft touch on some “really thick” pcbs.  I would like longer alignment pins for the retention modules as an improvement, but I can’t get the retention modules to hang on very well as the alignment pins don’t go through the boards.  Is there a technique to effectively attach the retention modules by only soldering the top part?  Or is this only possible on the soft touch PRO where the retention modules have the little notches cut out of the corners?
