    Does anyone have a method to insert the glass into that vinyl tract?I installed one on a 55 gallon a couple of weeks ago and it took me over a hour.I cut my finger in the process.I tried water,WD40 and even went to a hair dryer but it was a very slow process.

    You might want to try soap, that might help out. They should slide right in.

    I stand the lid vertically and slide the plastic straight down. It requires some force, but a rag over your hand prevents cuts.

    I just got off the phone with a Marineland rep and he told me basically what you said but to use water or plumbers water based silicone as a lub. I have a file that is diamond impregnate and
    it about 3000 grit I may even might try to soften that corner that gets inserted into the vinyl strip. Thanks!!

    Today I received my glass covers for a 10 and a 29 gallon tank.This time it was nothing like before .I took my diamond file and softened the corner that was to be inserted,wet the glass and tract and in less than 5 minutes I had them both on.
