No need for a chunk out of it, just bend it or cut a line in it and bend the top part in

Cut some short pieces of 'Cable Tie' and insert them between the chanel and rubber.

I use this method on all my Wagtails and Unger chanels.

This will give the same effect as 'dog earing' the chanel, but with less wear on the ends of the rubber.

No need to cut chanels when using the 'cable ties' or the 'Unger clips'.

Just found the vid I was looking for......take note on where he puts the clips (behind the rubber), this is what I do (only with cable ties at the mo).......

You must be doing something wrong then, if it making no difference.

 

How much rubber have you got sticking out of each end of the chanel........you only need a couple of mm.

Im not sure. Theres no need to cut the rubber. Just cut a line in the blade or bend the corners over.

 

If you dont notice any difference you have done it wrong.

Maybe you need to trim the rubber down a bit.

 

If your inserting the cable ties/clips in the correct way (behind the rubber), the corners of the rubber will be firmer and naturally turn down.

 

Been doing this on my Wagtail and Unger chanels and works fine.

I've only used the cable ties so far, which works fine on the Wagtail and Unger 'S' chanels.

 

I've not used the green Unger plastic end clips......yet.

Might get some next week
