Topbox lock help

I've just purchased a 28lt topbox for my R1200R and have managed to key the cylinder to my ignition key - or so I think. When the key is in, all the little tabs seem flush but when I insert the lock with the retaining tab, the cylinder still sits a little ways out and I cannot lock the box. I can open the box, disengage it from the rack and remove the key. I can turn the cylider by hand. I've put the lock in twice now after the painstaking time taken to remove it each time but it keeps doing the same thing.

Am I doing something wrong, any ideas anyone?
