You can trim the kador strip to size, the figure of 8 comes in x3 pieces and this is needed for ease of attatching and releasing. In really bad windy conditions you will find the rubber insert a complete waste of time, the kador will work loose. I have done a modification to stop this by ditching the rubber strip but you need to do a search as I do not have it to hand. T:

We fit our outwell awning onto the Calli awning by fitting figure of 8 strips (think its 3) onto the outwell awning. Then wind out the Calli awning a couple of inches, attatch the figure of 8s onto the TOP of the front of the wind out awning, then shut the Calli awning back up, which clamps the figure of 8s. This method stops your sliding door snaging the awning, trust me it does work!
The other way is to attatch the outwell awning to the kador strip with figure of 8s, then the kador strip into the Calli awning. Again wind out the Calli awning a few inches, then lift the front edge, there is a kador chanel hidden there, We tried using this (the correct method) but like many California owners found the sliding door fouling the drive away awning.
Hope this helps, bit difficult to explain though!!
