Diff Cable Lock?

I just picked up a 94 wrangler 2.5 and it has this kit:

I'm trying to figure out exactly how to use it to put it in 4x4. Is it just put it in 4 and hit the red button? I've never seen this before (new to yjs).

Also, anyone have any recommendations on the rear door seal where it meets the soft top window? I have rain coming in there sometimes. Not a big deal but would be nice to stop.

Put it in 4x4 and then pull the knob while pushing the button

Should pull out about an inch, may have to rock the Jeep back or forth a tad to line up the splines.

I've found to make a slight turn to the left and right while moving slowly to engage the CAD with a cable. Then screw the knob in to lock it in place, it operates just like an old school PTO cable.

Good to know. Thanks for the responses. I never used anything like it and PO said just hit the button, which seemed to do 0.

Am I correct in thinking it's only needed when going into 4x4? I'll test it out tonight.
