Can't get Skil router to mount with Skil router table

anyone have any ideas? I bought a Skil 1827 router and a Skil RAS900 Skil Router Table and when I try to connect the quick connect plate to the router it's base seems too big. I took off the clear plastic part on the bottom of the router. I think I'm doing something wrong because I called Skil and asked if they are both compatible and was told they are. the sides of the plate are curved. not the tabs for the quick connect but kind of like (___) but smaller.

Hello Beeker,
I have just gone through this myself with that table and the Skil 1830 router. The 1827 IS NOT listed as being compatible with the RAS900 table. I also found it incredible that a Skil router wouldn't work with their own table. I bought a DeWalt DW618 which IS on the list as working with the table. Dave
