Good question, Im not sure if the screws on the side of the slide go thru the strip or not. But it is secure and seems to be holding under the trim piece fine.
Now as to the double side tape that holds to the under side to the fabric.
Mine in one spot on the outside end last fall started to lose it hold.
Fortunately, I had some darco tape laying around and applied a small piece of tape to strip to hold it.
One thing I asked my dealer to do that they didn't, was to install the strip so it would stay in contact with the wear bar and slide bottom at all times.
In other words when my slide is extended, the wear strip doesn't make contact with the wear bar. (or its the other way around, cant remember right now)So when I retract the slide it has to glide up on the wear bar, good thing the bar has a radius on the top. Now thats not a problem yet, but you can bet Im watching closely.
Other then that the wear strips are doing a fine job protecting the area it covers.
Which is 90% of where the wear is on my unit.
I use 303 aerospace on the strips and the fabric bottom to keep them clean and slick.
I also use slide slickers on the carpet areas of my unit.
Hope all that made sense...
Added another pic , so maybe the screws do go thru the strips
