Rutland gasket with Channel


I spoke to a local fireplace supplier and asked about the Rutland gasket. She has the size of the gasket mentioned on a spool here but says that there is a channel in the middle for the glass of the fireplace. Is this what I am looking for?

Thanks for the help

    Mine is smooth just like the completed pic on the link you provided, no channel.  Not sure but they may sell a rope, more rounded, and a tape more flat I have the tape, my neighbor used the rope.  Both worked.

    I'd get the flat, not the rope.  The rope is like a tube, and once you glue it flat, the "top half" is always going to be loose, if that makes sense.
    What size egg are you doing?  If you have a large or smaller you can buy the kits just about anywhere (online, local hardware store).  If you have an XL, the kits are NOT big enough.
    Also, if you end up getting a kit, don't use the supplied Rutland adhesive, go to any auto parts store and get some Permatex Ultra Copper $6-$7 bucks.
