...went on by bending each side of the chain leading into it, so you were basically tipping the two pins towards each other a bit. This let the side plate fit on, release the tilting pressure and the pins went back to parallel, side plate fitted into a notch on the pins and that held it.
Sounds as if you might have gotten the same kind of link.
It wouldn't want to ever come off as all pressure on the chain is tension, and straight line at that.
Think I'd rather trust a single used link pressed off the old chain and put back together on the new one with a motorcycle chain tool (as suggested above), than do what you have done. What if it comes apart?
Good luck with it.
