Should a sprocket top hat washer be really tight?

Hi, I am trying to install a cult os sprocket onto 19mm cult os cranks. But the top hat washer seems really tight on the spindle. I'm know tight is better than being loose, but it's so tight it can't be done by hand. Is it safe to give it a few taps with a hammer or something? Thanks!

That sounds a bit too tight. Do you have a spare top hat washer you can try? I've had to press them into sprockets before, but never had one that tight on the axle
