Re: deluxe weatherstrip - lock strip

But my brother, who helped me, finally got it started. And then it all peeled off.
So this person was saying that is the reason why some of these lock strips look the way they do, because itís that plastic film that has baked in the sun, because it wasnít removed.
Interesting. So the plastic film on them is causing the issue then. Well, I'm not sure what happens when you try to remove a baked one. I'm guessing it's near impossible, so I'll just have to buy a new strip.
