Slide out locks/Braces

My slides keep creeping out when in motion tried using the locks but can't seem to make the stay in place they keep falling down, where are these things meant to be used and placed?

If it came from the factory with slide locks there should be square white stickers on the outside wall showing where to place the locks. Unless yours are different, you twist the lock to expand them so that they fit snugly between the top of the slide and the wall.

No stickers on the walls of a Berkshire. I place mine about half way up the wall and tighten them by twisting as itat said.

I have a buddy that puts them on top of his slides.

If slides are moving you may be low of fluid or have a faulty anti creep valve. When jacks are up and slides are in fluid should should be up to the second indented line of the bottle. Most come from factory low. They should not creep out even without the slide locks in place.

I was told that the locks should be centered on the slide at the top.

If your slide is creeping out, you're gonna have to replace the piston & the anti-creep valve.
It ain't easy being me...I've tried.

10-4 on the top of the slides..... I place a strap on mine and let it hang down over the slide on the inside as a visual reminder that they are in place.... Ask me why I now do that !!!

I was told by the Slide Tec at the factory to put the braces in the middle on the side of the slide.
