Door edge trim/molding

I installed black edge moldings on the doors today. I went to AutoZone and got some for $4.00. The trim at the top of the door fits well and the bottom fits well but the center doesn't seem to be sticking. The molding has the adhesive that is supposed to hold it in place. To those who did this, what did they use? I don't mind paying $4.00 if I didn't like it, but I do like the look and I want something that will hold up.

Thanks!

What if you were to try to heat the edging with a hair dryer.
I think this would help form the edge and help soften the glue and help it to stick.

Thanks! I was thinking maybe I should have spent a little more than $4.00 but I also wanted to see if I liked it. I do like it so I'll try the hair dryer.

3m sells a door edge film looks like it may be a clear bra type material. You can get it on Amazon for under $10. The reviews seemed mostly positive so I may order some with my next Amazon order.

Door edge trim/molding

I might have the same product as OP. I cut it into 2 inch sections and stuck it on the part of the door edge that sticks out the furthest. Works but barely noticeable.

I bought the more expensive type off of Amazon and the center holds great. It is the top that will come off in hotter weather that is my issue. I will probably reinstall them this winter which may give it a better bond come next summer.
