I use PTFE tape. Only $5 shipped with Amazon Prime for a 5 yard roll. Unlike the $0.50 white plumbing Teflon tape you get at the hardware store that is designed to fill the gap between the threads and prevent leaks, this PTFE tape is specifically designed to have a low friction surface for smooth gliding. The other side of the tape is adhesive, so it will stick to the surface.

I cut a thin strip with the X-Acto knife

I tape the thin strip on the smooth half-moon part of the mechanism.
