That implies the rail on the short side can easily pop out of the joiner. That's why for all my insulations I prefer to use Atlas code 55 insulated joiners that are symetric and that match with my MTL flextrack and Wright turnouts. But although I don't use it, I bet these work with Marklin track system as well.
