Chain install help

Quick question for you guys that have replaced your chains.

Im putting on a new 520 chain and every time I press the connecting link together the little o rings squish out to one side. It still moves fine so I know im not pressing it together too hard.
Is this normal, or will it hurt anything?

Please help guys asap.
Thanks

Measure the width of the rivet you made. As long as its within its limit, you've done it right

So as long as the connecting link is pressed together evenly, (within the limits) the o rings popping out the side wont hurt anything?

Am I the only person this has happened to?
