Keeping can aligned

I had to a large sofa back once and it drove me nuts it was just about 80” or so.
I don’t know if it’s possible for you , but I stapled it in place first..

And then I glued in the spline. So at this point the spline is just set in.
The staples are holding it in place.
I generally don’t recommend staples, it makes it very hard for the next guy.

An upholstery stapler works best. If any questions please email
A metal straight edge with measurements comes in handy.
