Hi, I would think you haven`t allowed time for the monitor to become fully acclimated to the enclosure because of the forced handling, unless they feel completely safe in there they won`t feel safe with you invading that space.
As Frank R. has already stated, your best "weapons" are food, time and patience.... No guarantees, many times it works, sometimes not, I think for the most part you get out what you put in.
