Low Clearance Bypass System assembly Fig 6First 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.

A: To determine where the track should be installed, first measure the height of the door, then add 2-7/8” to the door height.

B: 1/2” of this total will be for the clearance between the bottom edge of the door and the floor.

C: 2-3/8"” will be from the top edge of the door to the center of the hole.

D: Using a level and a pencil, make a line above the doorway the same length as the track.

E: Hold the track up to where the pencil line is visible through the holes in the track.

Suggestion: Use pieces of double stick tape on the back of the track to help hold the track in place while completing steps D and E.

F: Mark an intersecting line inside each slotted hole wherever they work best for your wall (i.e. stud locations).

Take the track down, remove double stick tape (if used) and set the track aside.

A: Drill out the marked holes using a drill with a 1/4” drill bit.
