Silly question, how do I lock my petrol tank cap?

How on earth do I lock my petrol cap? It's probably insanely obvious but I can't seem to get mine to lock.

I've tried turning it in both directions, turning the key in the lock, using the fob lock, leaving it, pushing it in, pushing it in and turning it, pushing it in and trying to lock it ect ect.

Make sure that key is fully anti-clockwise, put cap on, and turn clock-wise and here a few clicks, then turn key clock-wise and remove. Simple as peas!

You need to hold the cap when you are turning the key.
