So was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for an aftermarket glide for the Mach15. The one that came on it looks like this after 1 month.

Did you use the recommended adhesive applicator to bond it in place?

Not a fan of using adhesive on glides, but in that particular case yes it lasted about half a day before it was peeling/flaking off.

Have a Wanders glide on my Mach15
Awesome glide/quality/price
JB WELD glued/sealed it beautifully
Saw you guys recommend it
It’s available here in auto parts stores now
I’m now in love with JB weld

Buy a tool for edging where the tack strips are, may take a bit of time, but the cost of good guilds may cost more time and do bad at cleaning passes all over the carpet...

It never failed me when I put on a new glide.
The next day would be a entire apartment of builder grade junk with the tack strips poking through.
