You may notice the metal rollover on the side with the sticky stuff has an opening just wide enough to slide a 16ga or smaller wire inside Some manufacturers simply crimped the edge of the channel every 3-6" to prevent it from popping back out and make it more serviceable.

Foil tape or a silicone bead could work, but I tend to follow the method I've typically seen used, with the periodic crimp. Let me see if I can find a pic of what I'm talking about.
