Lend a hand handle rubber

I just bought a new Lend-a-Hand rubber since the handle foam is ripping. I saw a video on installing a new Lend-a-hand, but the rubber was already on it. Any thoughts on how to slide the rubber on the handle?

I saw a picture that showed taking the handle off and removing the bolts from one end and sliding the new one on. Where did you find a new pad- CW never has any.

Well, I am always a big fan of the soap and water method. Dish soap and water should lubricate the handle enough to ease it's sliding into place if that is what you are referring to.

It's a grab/assist handle next to the entry steps.

Tire mounting fluid or paste will work and once dry will not slip like other options. I believe there is a brand that comes in a spray can as well. Available at most farm and fleet type stores and the spray at some motorcycle shops.
