You have to carry it from one side to the other. It is not that heavy and easily lifts up off the rail. We toyed with trying to make it continuous, but it just got too complicated.
My 12-year old can do it, I would prefer he didn't, but he can.

We actually had these made as the joint pattern is not exactly standard. However, it was not as bad as you might think. There are a lot of companies out there who have water or plasma CNC cutting machines and getting them to cut out a few plates is not that expensive. We often use a sheet metal company (Crippen Sheet Metal for those of you around Austin)--they do a lot of duct work and such, but can also do these special projects for us.
