Default ARE Cap Removal/Reinstallation Question

I have had my ARE cap now for a few months and removed it twice. I never have been able to get it to seal water tight between the back window of the main cabin and the front of the ARE cap. When I purchased the cap, they installed it by stretching a 2" x 4" across the inside lip and using ratchet tiedowns hooked to the bed tiedown rings to ratchet it down. When I tried this, I broke my 2x4 (as they did with theirs on the first try). Is there a secret to get the cap to reseat properly to seal tightly against the roof of the main vehicle?

Dunno, mine slips right on and off... pinching my fingers constantly in the process.

I bought mine used and don't have any foam if that makes a difference.
