Mounting a Single Door
Mounting a Single Door
Follow these steps to mount the track for a single door:
1. To locate the position of the first mounting hole on the track:
a. Mark where the closed position of the door will be and measure 1 1/8” in from this point.
b. Mark the location of the first mounting hole.
c. Calculate the distance from the floor to the track mounting holes.
Mark the position for the first mounting hole.
d. Snap a level guideline as a guide for your remaining holes.

2. You can mount the track with, or without, Drywall Anti-crush Rings:
If you are mounting the track without Drywall Anti-crush Rings:
a. Pre-drill 1/8” diameter pilot hole for the first mounting hole.
b. Drill a 3/8” diameter hole for the first mounting bolt.
If you are mounting the track with Drywall Anti-crush Rings:
With proper blocking behind the drywall, you can mount the track(s) on top of the drywall or use Drywall Anti-crush Rings. Note: The optional Anti-crush Rings come in 1/2” and 5/8” thickness.
a. Use a 1 1/4” spade/paddle bit and drill a clean hole through the drywall until you reach the blocking.
b. Insert the Drywall Anti-crush Ring (sold separately).
c. Pre-drill 1/8” diameter pilot hole for the first mounting hole.
d. Drill a 3/8” diameter hole for the first mounting bolt.
3. Hold the track to the wall. Loosely screw the track in place.
4. Level the track and mark the remaining mounting hole locations along withyour level line guide.
Note: If multiple tracks (i.e., 10 ft., 12 ft., 14 ft. kits) arebeing installed for a single door, then you may use a Splice Plate to connect the tracks.
5. Repeat step 2 on the remaining mounting holes.
6. On the first mounting hole, remove the track. Place a Standoff (andextensions, lip pointing down into the standoff base, if using) behind thetrack and place an End Stop on the track.
Note: Depending on yourinstallation, you may have a Fixed End Stop or an Adjustable End Stop.
If you are attaching a Fixed End Stop:
a. Place an End Stop over the mounting hole (with the cushion padfacing the center of the track).
b. Loosely screw the Lag Screw into the wall.
c. On the opposite end mounting hole, place a Standoff (andextensions, if using) behind the track and an End Stop on the front of the track.
d.Place a Standoff behind each of the remaining mounting holes andsecurely screw the track to the wall.
If you are attaching an Adjustable End Stop:
Important! If your installation requires Adjustable End Stops, they must first be placed at their proper location on the track before attaching the track to the wall.
a. Loosen the set screws with the Allen wrench provided.
b. Slide the Adjustable End Stop on track (with the cushion pad facingthe center of the track).
c. Place a Standoff behind each of the remaining mounting holes andscrew the track to the wall.
d. Hang the door(s).
e. Adjust the End Stops to the desired final position, and securely tightenwith the Allen wrench.
- Failure to wear proper safety gear (i.e., eye protection) may result in serious injury or death. Always wear proper safety gear before using power tools.
- Improper operation of power tools may result in loss of control, serious injury or death. Always ensure you have complete control of the power tool and the work area is free of hazards before operating any tool.
- Lack of secure clamping of the door may result in unexpected movement of the door, loss of power tool control and serious injury or death. Always securely clamp the door in place before cutting or drilling the door.
- Lack of nor improperly installed Anti-jump Disc may result in the door coming off the track and cause serious injury or death. Installation of Anti-jump Disks is required for the safe operation of this hardware. Installed correctly, these discs will keep the door securely attached to the track.
- Mishandling of heavy objects (i.e., doors) may cause a loss of balance and severe injury. Always be sure you have a secure hold on the item and that the objects are balanced before moving. Always wear safety shoes when lifting heavy objects
- Getting body parts (i.e., hair, fingers) caught in moving parts may cause pinching and severe injury. Do not put fingers in parts that may move and always remove or contain anything on your body that may become entangled with a moving part.
- Closing sliding doors with your hand on the end of the door may result in your hand or fingers, getting caught between the door and other solid objects (i.e., another door, molding), causing severe injury. Always use the door handle to operate doors.
