その説明で 私は しっくり きました。That explanation made me assured. My doubt was evaporated.

この部品 と あの部品は しっくり はまります。This part and that part fits exactly. These parts fit to a T.


この部品 と あの部品は しっくり はまります。->この部品 と あの部品はピッタリはまります。

It is an expression of feeling used when something fits snugly and there is no discomfort.
