hey all. This seems like a ridiculous question, but has anyone else had issues getting the props to lock? All the promo materials made this look pretty effortless. I've push down with various levels of force and turned no no available (yes the colors match and yes I'm turning the correct way for each)

Can you post a video, I honestly don't see how the props are not able to attach. It's pretty effortless.

My props lock and unlock very securely and reliably.  But I have to say that the embossed Lock and Unlock symbols on the props I received are VERY difficult to see because the open/close padlock part of the symbol is almost invisible.  The Silver props lock by pushing down and rotating clockwise.  The black props lock by pressing down and rotating counter-clockwise.  Reverse the rotation direction to unlock/remove the props.  If you own a P3, these are the same rotation directions for locking/unlocking the silver/black screw-on props.

I wondered the same thing.  I find that tiny bit of sealed-for-your-protection plastic wrap around the props annoying and unnecessary.  At least DJI made it a LITTLE easier to remove than the plastic wrap on the P3 prop connectors.
