Grease it. Squeeze it. Push it.

Things like that.

I switched to Titan Silicone versions instead. Much easier to slip on and off and easier to clean.

It's called Post Sleeve - 3/4" Bumper (Space Shuttle) on their website.

Thanks for the replies.
I took a small paring knife and made it just a little concave at the bottom to help it get started. Turned and turned while pushing down.
I used a smear of aloe lotion at the concave bottom to get it started.

Generally, a drop of dish soap or just a little soapy water on the inside of the rubber will make it slide on very easy.
