Lewmar Beam Track

I'm replacing the original mainsail traveler on Rutea and have installed Lewmar's Size 3 Beam track. The track itself is installed and now I'm working on installing the end stops. My question is this: Does the track need to be drilled and tapped? Or do I just drill the track with a hole big enough for the end stop bolt to clear and let the bolt 'bottom out' on the cross-bar in the track? Has anyone installed one of these? Does anyone have a clue what I'm talking about?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Fair winds and calm seas.
