That is a very clever solution.
On close inspection I found that one of the bulb ears fit into a small notch in the reflector (at 6 o'clock). Then the largest ear was close enough to fit into the retaining ring slot with the reflector's ear, and I could let the third bulb ear push against the reflector without interferring with the retaining ring and still attach the retaining ring to the other reflector ears.
However I will not toss the old bulbs, nor your kind advice.
