When baking tapes with the Wright Line seals, I've  learned to remove the 
seals.  If you leave them on, the tapes at 58C,  will often just fall 
right out the seal--the coefficient of expansion is  much larger for the 
seals than for the tape reels.  After the seal has  had a chance to cool 
off, it fits fine.

This is particularly a  problem with the smaller size  reels.
