Anything included and install question

A home owner says:
Hello,

I bought a standard sliding screen door from Lowe's but don't have a top track. If I purchase the 80-110 does that come with pre-drilled holes and screws or do you I have to get those myself?

Also, do you recommend buying some kind of sealant to put between and around the top track for water accumulation concerns? Your product is 3/4" wide and I have a 1" wide top frame section to install your product on. Not sure if I should be concerned about the 1/4" gap.

Thanks,
Brian

The 80-110 does not come with pre-existing holes, so you you would have to drill them out where needed and use our 33-089 screw to install them. If you want, we also carry a self-drill "tex" screw. See our 33-062.

You could run some caulking between the track and header on the door. It wouldn't hurt, but I don't think it's that crucial. That 1/4" gap should not really concern you. The diagram is just showing where the top roller will ride on the inside rail. The most important thing is that the 80-110 is 5/8" wide. Check the width and height of your door,
