Are the cover's sides supposed to be glued or solvent welded?
No. The cover is built using inTank Tab Technology™. The cover is cut from a single piece then precision heat bent.
What if I need a notch or custom cutout for my equipment?
Easy - The cover is easy to cut with a pair of hand snips, rotary tool, razor blade or anything similar. The ABS plastic is easy to cut and will not shatter - it is very soft. You can cut an area to custom fit your particular equipment.
