Hi my name is***** seals with the metal channel are a royal pain to get on. I actually got a block of plastic and shaved it down to a wedge and what I normally do is get the seal started then push it on with the plastic wedge so the metal insert goes on the flange, these are really hard to get on. Sometimes I will also spray some 409 in the channel and that will help get it on some. So it sounds like you will have to get something between the room and flange and pry it on, the plastic will not damage the paint but maybe even a wooden wedge will work... Hope this helps some, IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
