The middle piece that you see in the picture is a piece of PVC pipe that I have covering the ends of two lengths of top rail. One length of the rail has a large wooden dowel fixed to the inside of it, such that it can be used to quickly join one rail to the other. I then slide the PVC outer shell over the joined area for some extra piece of mind.
