1. Locate tracks on your door
To install sliding door tracks, you will first need to locate them on the door. You’ll need to measure the width and height of your door, as well as the location of the track brackets. You can then find the exact measurements online or in a hardware store.
You’ll also need to purchase some screws and bolts, usually in metric or inch sizes. The screws should be long enough to go through both sides of the track bracket and into the wall; they should also have a head on them so they can be easily tightened. The bolts should have a washer and nut on them so that they can be securely fastened onto your wall.
2. Insert the track into the door jamb
To install sliding door tracks, first make sure that the door jamb is exactly the right size. Then, using a pair of pliers or a screwdriver, remove the old track and screws. Once these are removed, insert the new track into the hole in the door jamb and tighten it with screws. Make sure that the track is flush against both the edge of the door and frame.
3. Align the track with the hinge pin
To install sliding door tracks, you’ll need to first align the track with the hinge pin. To do this, place the track around the door so that it’s centred on the hinge and make sure that the pins are aligned with the slots on the track. Then, push down on both ends of the track until it firmly secures against the door.
4. Drive screws into the track and door frame to hold it in place
To install sliding door tracks, you’ll need to drive screws into the track and door frame to hold it in place. Make sure that you use a screwdriver that’s the right size for the screws and that the screw heads are level with each other so that your tracks will slide smoothly.
5. Close and lock the door
To install sliding door tracks, you’ll need to close and lock the door first. Then, you’ll need to drill a hole in the bottom of the track where it will attach to the door. You can then secure the track by screwing it into place. button head screw
