Technique for Fitting Rubber Door Gasket Replacement

Postby actoms » Sat Aug 18, 2018 4:54 pm

Does anyone have any tips on fitting a replacement Stormguard rubber sealing gasket into a UPVC door?

I have removed the old gasket and have the replacement. The first few inches click into place in the groove quite readily but then I can't seem to get it to catch for the rest of the length. Have tried WD40 on door groove, and washing up liquid smeared on the gasket edge, pushed, stretched a little then tried to push it into place but to no avail.

I am sure it's an easy job once one has the technique but it's driving me mad!

All answers gratefully received.
