Socket - 8 Pin, Phenolic, top mount

I installed this same socket in a 5E2 Fender. It’s for the 5y3gt tube. But the tube will not fit all the way into the socket! Leaving the pins exposed and the amp play on and off. Can you give me some help on this?

You might just need to use a little more force. New sockets haven't been loosened from use so they can give more physical resistance when first used.
