    Ok will give that a go. Is it a case of making sure the rubber is nice and lubed up. Thanks pal.

    Washing up liquid is not a good thing to use as it contains a lot of salt, window cleaner works well, and make sure you use a good strong cord, I find the stuff used on washing lines works well.

    Don't bother with any sealant/adhesive either.
