Taping Pilot Rails

I’m curious if anybody has a slick way of taping the rails on a Pilot after it’s been inked without pulling the rollers. Pulling the saddles/trucks forward with one hand and taping with the other is a little awkward. I’m considering making some temporary blocks to pull everything forward. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Unless I’m mistaken, you should be able to apply tape to the rails of a pilot with the rollers at rest at the bottom of the bed without removing or holding back anything. Remember the tape only needs to be in places where the image is located in the usable area of the bed.

Thank you, jhenry. I have seen the light. Somehow I got it in my head that I needed to tape the entire length of the rails. Appreciate your insight.
