Sounds like your trying to connect a set of hoses using a quick coupler. If you cannot bleed the pressure off using the hand controls then you will need to looses the hoses on the grapple making sure the attachment is in safe position and cannot move. This will allow a small amount of oil to expel and thus allow the room needed to push the couplers onto the machine. Catch the waste oil and then secure the lines to try out unit.
