Easy job best done when its warm the rubber is easier to work with. Just use a blunt tool to feed it in to the channel ,hope this helps.

Buy a bottle or two of cheap washing up liquid and wipe it liberally along the strip as you prise it into place, try to rest the bottom of the strip in first then run along the top with a blunt instrument like a screwdriver. It a job for a warm day as suggested.
