When I first got my jigsaw, not a Ridgid, I had troublt getting the blades to seat in the saws blade holder mechanism. However, as Dan said, after a time the blade holder mechanism will loosen up a bit and the installation becomes very easy. Those Bosch Progressor blades will fit in your Ridgid jigsaw but will probably take a little extra hard final push for a little while.
