The longer bar does have two mounting screw holes on it, one is to use at the middle of the bar, for when you use the long bar only. The other is offset to use when you tape the two bars together. Tape the bars so the end closest the nose is even with both bars, then use the hole that is closer to the nose. This will keep your CG centered.

I doubt that you will ever need both fuse ballast bars with the wing ballast that you have. I tape my ballast bars to a hemostat to jig it around to meet up with the fuselage side hole. It's fiddly and not fun to do at the slope, but it works. When the screw is tightened down on the ballast bar, I pull the hemostat off the tape and am good to go after that. Both bars do fit in the fuselage, if you mount everything as per the instruction sheet, but it is tight!!
