Reason I got them on Amazon was the lengths available were longer/cheaper than auto stores, and I wanted black, where most auto stores have the chrome.

I remember the post you refer too. What the gentleman used was a strip of self adhesive body side molding (black) it was about 1/2-3/4" wide and 1/4" in height that he got at Amazon. I think it's still on my amazon ( to do) shopping list! It would flip the seal one way or the other depending which way the slide was going. Seems like a solid idea.

If I were going to do this on all 3 sides of a slide, I would put the trim on a slight angle to lessen the force on the adhesive. Might not look as nice, but it would stay glued to the slide longer.

OLD COOT, trust me...if put on correctly that trim won't come off. The 3-M strips on the trim is the same stuff auto makers use to attach a lot of there trim pieces... Look at any 20-25 year old car out there with side trim strips. Still attached, still strong. Takes damn near a high temp heat gun and a chisel to get em off.
Trick is to get the surface absoultely squeaky clean, and after the trim is applied to let it set up for an hour or two.

Don't disagree, but putting it on a slight angle would also reduce the effort required to deploy/stow the slide. Slide mechanisms don't need any extra effort to work, they're borderline strong enough as is.
