I use a teflon dry film lubricant on the seals. Helps them flip out on their own. Believe I got it through Grainger.com.

I use to have a problem with the seals not flipping solved that using tape bought at Home Depot. It's usually used on steps. It has a rough surface that the rubber rubs against flipping it in and out as the slider moves. Helps clean the dirt too. Jim

I was wondering if anyone else used this.While back at the factory in Dec.we asked about this problem and guess what,that is exactly how they fixed it.If I get a chance i well take some pictures of the inside of the slide to show what they did.

Interesting when I was at the factory in October I complained about the same thing and they told me they had no fix. They must have found one since then. I would be interested in pictures please.

This picture shows the tape that was applied at factory in Dec.It is on front and back walls of slide,inside and out.Works well to grab rubber seal and flip it in the proper direction
