How to Install Sliding Door Roller Assemblies
Trim your track so it is 1-1/2 inches shorter than the entire width of the opening of the door to allow for room to insert the four-wheel hangers.
Screw roller assembly track to header. On a pocket door, make sure when you install your track that you leave the 1-1/2” clearance in the doorway, not in the pocket.
Insert four-wheel hangers into track with key slot facing the interior of the room.
Bore 2 holes, each 1/2 inch diameter by 1/4 inch deep in the top horizontal edge of the door. Make these holes 3 inches from either end of door.
Attach the top plates to the door, centering them directly over the newly-made holes and using holes to secure the plates in place.
Thread the pendant bolt into the top plate adjusting nut. Attach the door to the hanger by inserting the pendant bolt into the key slot in the hanger; rotate the pendant bolt 90 degrees to lock it into position. Turn the top plate nut with a wrench to adjust the door vertically for plumb and height.
