Bare wire is the best connection from what I've read.
I use locking banana plugs mostly for convenience. Not the purists way to go but it works for me.
And, while there might not be a "click" associated with them, you can tell when they are properly inserted as they will fit "flush" into the binding post and completely slide in. If they don't fit and if you've tried turning the binding post all the way counterclockwise, then there is a problem with the post itself or the banana plugs.
From there, you just tighten up the binding post connection and you're good to go.
Glad it worked for you.
