Tips for an Easy Install with a Bulb Seal and Channel

Tips for an Easy Install with a Bulb Seal and Channel

When installing a bulb seal with channel, the bulb can sometimes be a little stubborn when sliding onto the track. What can you do to make this process easier? We have some options for you!

Our first recommendation is using good old soapy water! The soapy water or just plain soap itself will act as a lubricant to make for an easy glide for the bulb as you slide it onto the track. The soap will not harm your metal nor your rubber and will evaporate.

Your other option for easier installation doesn’t involve sliding the bulb on. First, line up your bulb to the track, then snap in one complete side and when that is done snap in the other side and you’re done!
