Yeah I would roll the slider along the bar then take it off and see where it was rubbing and then file it down there to get the fit just right. Pretty clever design!
Very Cool!!! I've been trying to think of a way to use them. I was originally going to put them on my Prusa Z-Axis, but couldn't figure out a way to easily mount them. Putting washers in might help them roll a bit easier, but I found that as long as you didn't tighten the nuts and screws to tight, they rolled rather easily.

2) Take 3-624z bearings, insert into slots, put an M4 x 16 screw in each of the bearings.
3) Put nuts on the screws and tighten until the screw is no longer moving back and forth. Any tighter and the plastic will clamp down on the bearing, causing it not to move.
4) Slide over an 8mm smooth rod and move back and forth multiple times to loosen the item up a bit. It will be stiff when you first put it on, but after a while, it moves freely.
