That seems odd...why 4 flex tools? Do they think you are going to manually bring in all 4 slides at the same time?

LOL!! Ya never know with the 'great' quality on RVs these days.

What Norco/BAL does, I was told by my dealer, is supply one with each slide. Mine were taped behind the slides garnish molding. I've given a couple away as they are decent flex extensions for a battery screw driver.
