SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Bottom track replacement for mirrored sliding doors.

A quick learner from Phoenix, Arizona says:
I have two closets that need new bottom tracks. One closet is 5 feet wide and the other is 6 feet wide. I think one of your 23-270 series would do fine but why are they dimensioned one inch less than the actual opening?

That 1" difference shouldn't affect the function of the doors, as the door rollers will never make it that far to either end of the opening.

Due to the track lengths you have available, I guess I'll have to order 23-272 for my 5-ft wide closet and 23-273 for my 6-ft wide closet and then cut them to fit. Am I correct?

Yes, you can trim our tracks down with a fine tooth hacksaw.
