Track cover for 12 ft. opening

A handy person from florida says:
My sliding glass doors cover a twelve foot opening with four glass panels. Two of the panels are movable and meet at the middle of the opening. How should I install the track covers? Where should they meet? at the middle? If so, should I glue the covers to the rail so they don't pop up at the middle? Thanks for your help.

The 80-102 and 80-103 track covers normally snap over top of your existing track. Check out the video below to see how. I do know of some repairmen who use an epoxy type adhesive to glue down the tracks, but if you go that route then take your time with it, as it could get messy. Also, if you think you will have a problem with the track cover staying down try a small sheet metal screw on the end of the track. Something like our 33-071 screw.
