Oh...the white stripe on the inside of the first photo is the finished edge, in other words the z-shaped pegs are inside the two pieces and the long part of them goes across the slot which is an opening on the bottom of the bottom piece, when the pieces are connected.

You set the spacing of the, let's call them "hangers" on the inside, and slide the brackets together.

Why are they z-shaped, why not u-shaped and go in the holes on both sides? Well if you had one facing in from each direction, something hung across both would have some wiggle room, but only until the point where it caught on the upwards-facing side of the z. And you can't go over the top of that because it is inside the two pieces. Although not enough that the upwards facing points have ever scratched the bottom of the top piece.
