Living Room Top Slide Seal Install Tip Requested

Good evening. Anyone here have any tips on how to most effectively install the top portion of the living room slide seal? Mine is the kind that has the metal clips inside the rubber seal but it is being a real bear in getting the rubber section with the metal clips to open up in order to accept the metal ridge it is suppose to secure to. Fingers are getting worked pretty bad at this point but Iím too stubborn to have someone else do it.

Thanks All!

Make yourself an oversized brake adjustment spoon. Use that to lever/ push the clips onto the metal. Make the working area of the tool about 3" wide so you can push that much seal on at one time. This is what the factory used, an overgrown one of these.

Thank you so much. I actually purchased the one you included and will work off that model accordingly. My pointer finger thanks you!

Next time I will be outsourcing this project. Of all the projects Iíve worked on, installing a slide seal (Top, Bottom and Sides) is by far my least favorite.

Things are going great, Charles!!! Iím so pleased that you two sold your home and officially Full Timing!!!! Thatís so great! I hope your new slide seal indeed fixes the leaking issue. We too are in the process of completing that very process. I have such fond memories of the 2000 Magna you now call home. I hope your other repair issues are minimal and that your time in Alaska goes perfectly for you. All the best to you and your wife!!
