I'm a custom cabinetmaker and I use this product to make hanging in drawers for files. I flip the box over, use a thin kerft tablesaw blade or ensure my blade is 1/8" the cut slots about 5/8" deep and slip tge aluminium bar into the slots. I may use a dab of a 5 min epoxy to glue them in if the fit is too loose.

The Everbilt 2” x 1/8” x 96” aluminum flat stock was as expected. It is a non-heat treated class of aluminum stock that is softer and less stiff for general purpose use.
I used a piece of this flat stock on my basement stairs to make the transition from the newly tiled landing to the face of the top step, while adding only 1/8” to the landing overhang. Keeping the landing overhang to a minimum was necessary to reduce tripping while going up and stumbling while going down.
The steps to the basement in my 100 year old home are not to current code; generally a 7” rise and 11” depth with no more than 1” overhang on the tread nose. My tread depth is inadequate at 8“, and I would make the situation worse if any landing overhang was added. (You shouldn’t have to think about what you are doing when using steps; these you do.)
Due to the short tread depth, I did not want to use standard materials to finish off the edge of the tile where it ends at the top step/landing. I also didn’t want to drill into the ceramic tile. This 2” wide flat aluminum stock worked nicely. It only protrudes 1/8” and gives a nice, durable, finished edge. It is also not too noticeable, is wide enough to allow screwing into the wood stair face, and most important doesn’t create a trip hazard. Still some wood trim to tidy up, then caulk, sand, and paint.
