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

    I mean cut square out of rubber is that what you thought I meant? Supposed to not need detailing. Don't want to risk cutting metal bit because scared of knackering it,just got wagtail flipper

    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.
