screw covers

I'm going to change the rubber strips that cover the screws on the front of my trailer. I have seen a few videos on it, doesn't look like a big deal but I was wondering in anyone here has done it and might have a suggestion or two to offer.

The only time I removed the vinyl strip was to recaulk the seam [another story altogether]. Don't remember any of the details other than its a pretty straight forward process. I reinstalled the same strip once I removed and resealed the corner braces.

Are you doing this because the old strips are discolored?

Thank you, It looks easy but sometimes someone has done the job and may have a tip or two. Mine are starting to discolor with yellow spots so my wife wants me to change them. I was told to start at the top and work down and put a dad of caulk where the screws go in to hold the strip in place.

It's really simple. Just pinch it lengthwise and slide it into the channel. And yes use a little caulk on the ends.

I replaced one on the back of the trailer because it was cut about 6 inches short from the factory.
