The Tub Gasket seals the top and sides of the tub to
the door. The retainer is molded into the PermaTuf
Tub. The seal pushes into the retainer area of the
tub, and no sealant or RTV is used to install the
tub gasket. There is a stop molded into the tub to
provide a proper position end point for the gasket.
To remove: pull the gasket from the retainer area.
