I pulled them off to paint the tank.

WTF is the trick to getting them back on? Heat in boiling water? Soapy water?

All of the above plus patience and possible another pair of hands.

Boiling water to soften the pads

Thank you DL.

Mine are probably original 1963 vintage; somewhat hard with minor stress/age cracking. I have one of those tools.

Just the opposite problem with the knee-pads on my 6gal BMW tank; they're glued on... unless they've fallen off.
