keep the ... pressed in as far as it will go
Explanation:
The verb you need 'pressed' etc. may depend on the exact form this 'gachette' takes, and the way it is operated; you ought to be able to figure this out if you have the illustration to which this text refers.

'pressed all the way in' might be a slightly more concise alternative.
