If yours does not have the stickers on the wall above the slide, it may never have been designed with the slide locks in mind.
Yet another cost-cutting measure?

Hmmm...I don't have stickers, but I did get 2 slide locks. I only put one on near the front of the slide though, too hard to reach anywhere else.

Apparently the story may be that gear driven slides do not need them but hydraulic slides do. YMMV.

Mine are gear-driven.
I just like the fact that the slide bars hold the top of the slide from moving, as there is absolutely nothing else to keep it tight against the camper wall when closed.
It does seem that some of the stuff the factory does is both inconsistant and mind-numbing!
