Floataway bifold door will not stay closed

A home owner from Boulder, CO says:
I also have a set of floataway doors, the hardware seems fine but one of the bifold doors will not stay closed. The one side closes fine and has what feels like an over-center motion to hold the bifold flat. The other door does not seem to have that same over-center action and the door just falls open. Any thoughts on what the door needs?

Good Morning,

It sounds like you need a "bumper" or "snuggler." These pieces fit into the track between the two doors and adds pressure for the doors to stay closed. Start your research by taking a look at the 21-275 Bumper, the 21-277 Bumper and the 21-278 Bumper.
