Schlagen Sie vorsichtig mit der Handfläche auf den Klip um ihn einrasten zu lassen.

Slap the clip carefully with a palm to lock it into place.
Ist slap hier angemessen und der Rest auch Ok?

I think I'd say this:

Strike the clip carefully with your hand to lock it into place.

(If you say "hand", it is already obvious that you do not mean "fist")

Give the clip a gentle slap to lock it into place.

(aren't slaps always done with a flat hand?)

^Spinatwachtel's suggestion is much better than mine.
