Slide Help

Sorry about the length, but I'm hoping someone can verify what I'm thinking. On our wall slide, the edge of a towel got caught on the slide. The result was that a piece of the plastic under-carpet trim that serves to make everything 'level' broke off. It positioned itself over the nylon glide that lifts and positions the slide as the rollers come in. So I moved the slide in a little so that I could pull the broken piece out from under and then moved the slide in as normal. The roller came right up the glide as it it should. And so things sit.

In looking at the broken piece and how I think the plastic skirt works, I think it is 99% cosmetic - providing a smooth surface under the carpet edge on the slide. As it is right at the corner, I'm thinking that won't hurt anything to just leave it as-is. The option sounds expensive - either figuring out how to get the piece back secured back under the slide (how?) and/or ordering a whole new piece (it seems to be in sections) and having it installed - which I assume requires major work in/around the slide.

Anyone else ever had to deal with anything similar?

The plastic sheeting is to suport the carpet. It allows the carpet to flex a little but at the same time keeps the carpet from showing ware from flexing too much. You can buy it buy the foot from Litchtsinn motors. You can get a foot or two and apply 3m two sided tape to the inner edge and just place it over the broken piece to once again suport the carpet. Works great. Easy to install.
