• Press the stem of the glides into the vacuum slots of the skids, or if
you have one, use a rubber mallet. They should fit very firmly and seat
• If a glide is not seating well, the cause is usually an irregular weld on
the skid. Trim the Teflon to allow the glide to seat fully onto the skid.
• Run the machine as usual.
• The glides may be removed by GENTLY prying up from one end with
a flat head screwdriver.
• At least once a month, or as uneven wear is noticed, remove glides and
reinstall facing the opposite direction. Wear tends to be greatest on the
outside edges of the skids, flipping them around will greatly extend
the life of your RX20 glides. Also, if most of your work is on thin,
apartment grade carpets, occasionally run the glides on a thin
gluedown commercial. This will burnish and smooth the scratches that
tack strip causes.
• Use the provided cleaning tool to ream out the holes in your glides.
This keeps them round and free of debris, thereby maximizing the
performance of your glides.
