Mead Door Assembly Instructions

Hanger Installation

Step 1: Place the hanger (A.) on the top surface of the door 1/4” from the back edge of the door and 2” from the door side. Ensure the front of the hanger and the front of the door are facing the same direction (Figure 1 and Figure 1A).

Step 2: Using a pencil, mark the screw hole placement on the door top.

Note: If a pop rivet conflicts with a pilot hole it may be removed from the top of the door. The screws mounting the hanger will resecure the decorative metal to the core of the door.

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the opposite end of the door.

Step 4: Drill two pilot holes for each hanger using an 1/8”bit (Figure 2).

Step 5: Attach the hanger to the door using two fastener screws (C.). Repeat the process on the opposite end of the door (Figure 3).

Mead Door Fig 3First 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.

Step 1: To determine where the track should be installed, first measure the height of the door, then add 2-1/8” to the door height. 1/2” of this total will be for the clearance between the bottom edge of the door and the floor. 1-5/8” will be from the top edge of the door to the center of the track. (Figure 1).

Step 2: Using a level and a pencil, make a line above the doorway the same length as the track.

Step 3: Hold the track up to where the pencil line is visible through the holes in the track (Figure 2).

Suggestion: Use pieces of double stick tape on the back of the track to help hold the track in place while completing steps 2 and 3.

Step 4: Mark an intersecting line in the center of each track hole (Figure 2).

Step 5: Take the track down, remove double stick tape (if used) and set the track aside.

Step 6: Drill out the marked holes using a drill with a 1/4” drill bit (Figure 3).

Step 17: Place the Anti-Jump bracket on the door side, moving the bracket up until it is between 1/8” and 1/16” from the bottom edge of the track. Mark the placement with a pencil.

Suggestion: Use double stick tape on the back of the anti-jump bracket to hold it in place on the door.
