Default Windshield rubber

Any tips on getting the rubber seal to pass through the channel on the windshield without bending the channel metal??

Be sure the rubber isn't too thick, like I got on my first order.

Don't trim right after after installation let it set for a few days because the rubber seal tends to shrink up somewhat .
