ADJUSTMENT



The ideal sliding door alignment is one where a parallel gap of equal proportion exists along the top and bottom edges of the door. Raising or lowering the front or rear of the door makes adjustments. The center roller bracket and the lower roller bracket are used to adjust the height of the rear and the front of the sliding door respectively. To adjust, simply loosen the bracket to door bolts and adjust as necessary.
