Just thinking about it, I wouldn't thing you would want to use vasoline on them if you want them to stay in place. People have used vasoline to help keep the seals sort after they are installed.

 

Try installing them on a warm day so the seals are soft and flexible.




RIP Jay - So glad to have known you

Don't get Vaseline on the surfaces you need to apply contact cement to.
