That's similar to how I do it. I reinstall the bolt to the body when the arm is disconnected. This keeps me from losing the bolt and is easier than storing in the back. I then start to close the door and position the arm over the bolt and close the door fully which presses the arm in. It pops in without issue. As well, I have installed clear packing tape (thicker than most tapes) around the bolt hole on the body in case the arm contacts the body when pressing it in. To date, no issues with any scrapes or marks on the paint near the bolt.Pushing in I would imagine should be easy. Just tape a little square of cloth at the end so it doesn’t scratch your door jam paint and gently close your door while the door check is unbolted.
