I need to replace my slide seals. It seems every online seller that has the EK wipers by AP has them in a 35 foot length. Since I need a total of 43 ft buying in 35ft length would result in over 20ft of waist. Strangely the EK D seals are in 50ft length.

Has anyone come across someone selling these by the foot or in a 50ft length.

Or should I go with the ones from Steele Rubber (sold by the foot).

I ended up buying the wiper seals directly from Steele.
But bought the D seals from Amazon.

Spent a couple days measuring what was on the rig and the tech drawings from both AP and Steele. They appear to be interchangeable.

You can only buy the AP wiper seal in 35 foot lengths, so that would mean wasting 27 ft. So the Steele buy the foot eliminates waste.

But 50 ft of AP EKD seal is almost $65 less than buy the foot from Steele.

If for some reason the D seal doesn't fit, it's amazon prime so I can return it.

good luck with the install. I found it rather difficult to get them positioned just right, also trimming them not easy. And newer ones are not as flexible.
