True most often uses a dart style gasket-- see a picture at this link True Refrigeration Door Gasket Replacement | Parts Town
With that in mind, you just have to pull the gasket off there. Keep in mind, I wouldn't do this until it's replacement time. You may tear the old gasket.
Make sure the channel is clean before installing the new gasket. Soap and water works great.

First question, Sliding or swing doors. Most common are swing. You won't find a breakdown of the door as it ins't a serviceable item. If a swing door, you can replace gaskets, hinges, lock, and the closer spring. Bottom hinges are just a bearing and a pin. The top hinges have a pin to adjust the door tension. Use 2 allen wrenches to back off or add tension. The spring is no more than a long wire with 2 loops to engage the hinge and door.
True's are built with a pretty stiff door, so warping them during gasket replacement on the box isn't a issue. But backing the door up to prevent movement is. On many coolers I have found it best to remove the door and place on a supported flat table due to the variation in gasket dimensions and shipping folds. That way you can get the four corners anchored and distribute the buckle evenly. But on a True, they have the wide gasket stiffener with offset gasket. The barb though is in the center, This makes it easy to install in place on the box. It helps to have a short block of wood to press with about 4 inches long and 1/2 X 2 to press with., Start with the top inside corner, then the top out side corner. Finish the top, then do the bottom inside and outside, You will probably notice that the gasket is loose on the sides. Start pushing it in from top and bottom a little at a time, pushing to the ends as you go, That way you won't have a big bunch in the middle as you finish.

Anyone that has done a few of these will get a kick out of that. They sure do make it look simple. Guess they don't have to deal with the folds from shipping.
I know it. To get the kinks out of a gasket, I prefer direct sunshine with it layed out to magnetically stick onto a flat metal surface. Otherwise, I give the gasket a ride through a high-temp dishwasher, a steamer or a kettle - then stick it flat to a metal door or something similar to let it rest.
I have to laugh at Traulsen's packaging. It's so ridiculously comical.
They actually ship a gasket inside a gasket-shaped, rectangular box with a hole in the middle. You receive THAT and you're thinkin', "Hey! The gasket inside ought to be in PERFECT shape!"
Then you open it to find that the entire gasket is folded, twisted and crammed into just one side of that gasket-shaped, rectangular box with a hole in the middle.
The other three sides of that beautiful box...merely contain air.
