Slide out seal flip tab?

I recently saw a small black vertical "tab" on the side of a Heartland 5th wheel slideout that seems to help with flipping the seals out when extending. There were two tabs on each side of the slideouts about 6" long and less than an 1" wide. Anyone know where I could purchase some? It looks like a pretty clever addition.

I will follow this thread for the answer too. But you might want to search for this subject on IRV2 because there was a thread on the subject just a few weeks ago. I did not see your 6 inch tabs mentioned there.

Bear in mind that they are not seals but only wipers to remove moisture when retracting the slide and will do so in either direction.
So it's only aesthetics whether they are "flipped" or not.
