Then I was NOT using the best tool I could have chosen to push the rubber into the groove. Then I chose the wrong lube to use trying to make the rubber go in place, then finally I determined that I was not putting the right part of the gasket into the channel first. After much frustration, and ruining one gasket I nailed the proper installation procedure and everything worked and went together perfectly.
Unfortunately, I suspect that most folks complaining of having problems, and blaming the manufacturer's product, are actually experiencing user error.
I installed it..
I totally cleaner out the channel, checked every inch. I did not break during the installation but only after a year or so in place. I noticed the separation along the left edge!
