    I used it on both my FC400 and my Onza 3. Made a noticeable difference in both. I used 1/2 inch weatherstripping, and just cut it down to size. Word of advice, take one side of the SOS rubber off before installing the foam. Makes it alot easier.

    What I used was the 3/8" wide by 3/16" thick made by frost king, picked it up at lowes last fall for around our doors and had several feet left over. I cut the 1st strip long enough to form a half circle inside the sos bracket and the 2nd layer just long enough to fill in. The thickness worked out so it just touches the back of the sos.

    Do you think it will help with the string cutting the rubber?

    Not sure, but it should help extend the life of the sos since it can't travel quite as far into the bracket. I think that the couple people on here that have had an sos tear may have either gotten a bad sos or possibly may have an issue with the bracket itself, maybe a sharp edge left from the molding process ?
