The above is a link to a video showing how to use a lockstrip tool.

Armorall was used as a lubricant. I find dish soap to be a bit messy.


The tool was purchased here.

Lockstrip installation took about 10-15 minutes with this tool and technique.

Using two flat screwdrivers took about 8 hours.

The tool is well worth the $$ for the time it saves.

Nice video!

OK then, if it is that simple, I might try it myself. What do you do when you get to the point where the beginning and end meet?

Do you leave the strip a little longer, shorter or cut it exactly to length? When do you pull the tool from the groove? Etc.?

My lockstip was longer than the beading.

When I get to the end I trim off the lockstrip to sit flush with the other end. If it happens to be a bit shorter then no big deal. There is still enough pressure on the window to keep it in place.

When you get to the last 1 or 2 inches you can take the tool out and press the remainder in using the end of the tool.
