Rack requiring two separate pieces of heat tape?

Hey guys, just wanted to ask you guys opinion on something. I recently bought a couple different hatchling racks from a friend of mine. They are all the same, however the rack is divided into two sides which requires two pieces of heat tape for 1 rack. Would you guys recommend splicing the heat tape together so I can only use one thermostat? If so does anyone have a video on how to do it?
