NOTE: Doors using Floor Mount Door Guides will have a groove on the bottom. Ensure this groove is on the opposite end of the Door Hanger Installation.First Things First
Check to see if the floor below the track area is level. If the floor rises more than 1/2” the door may rub or not slide open completely. If the floor is not level, measure from the highest point of the floor surface to the recommended track placement and adjust track placement accordingly.
Ensure the track will be installed onto wall studs. If wall studs are not lining up with the installation a header will be required to provide the necessary strength and stability for the track and door.
Before begining this installation, ensure that there will be enough room for the door to slide into the track. An area on one side of the track must be wide enough for the width of the door to install properly
Step 1: To determine where the track should be installed, first measure the height of the door, then add 3-3/4” to the door length. 1/2” will be for the clearance between the bottom edge of the door and the floor. 3-1/4” will be from the top of the door to the bottom of the track. (Figure 1).
Step 2: Using a level and a pencil, make a line 3-3/4” above the door.
Step 3: Using a stud finder, locate the studs along the area the brackets will be installed (Figure 2).
Step 4: Place the bottom edge of one of the brackets (B.) along the line drawn in step 2 in the stud locations marked in step 3. Using a pencil, mark the center of each bracket hole (Figure 3).
Step 5: Drill out the marked holes using a drill with a 1/4” drill bit (Figure 4).
Step 6: Loosly attach an end bracket (B.) to the wall using two washers (E.) and two lag screws (H.). Do not tighten(Figure 5).
Step 7: Slide the box track (A.) through the bottom of the bracket. Tighten the lag screws. Install the other end bracket. Slide the other end of the box track into the end bracket so both brackets are supporting the box track (Figure 6).
Step 8: Install remaining brackets (Figure 7).
Step 9: Lay the door with the front facing up on a flat, level surface. Measure 1” from the edge of the door. Mark with a pencil (Figure 8).
Step 10: Repeat step 9 for the opposite edge of the door.
Step 11: Install the hanger (D.) on the top of the door with the edge of the hanger lining up with the pencil mark on the top. Secure with two lag screws (H.) (Figure 9).
Step 12: Carefully slide the hangers into the box track, ensuring the front wheel aligns with the front track gutter (Figure 10).
Step 13: Slip the end caps (C.) over the ends of the box track. Secure in place using self tapping screws (F.) (Figure11).
Step 14: With the door in the closed position, ensure the door is hanging straight using a bubble level.
Step 15: Position the Door Guide (I.) part way into the groove in the bottom of the door (Figure 12).
Suggestion: Use double stick tape on the bottom of the door guide to hold the guide in place.
Step 16: Install the Door Guide using a 1” phillips screw (G.) and a drill with a phillips bit.
Step 17: Slide the door toward the open position until the other side of the Door Guide is exposed.
Suggestion: Use double stick tape on the back of the anti-jump bracket to hold it in place on the door.
Step 18: Install the second 1” phillips screw (G.) using a drill with a phillips bit (Figure 13).
