A home owner from San Jose says:
I notice the total width is 2 11/32". What is the width from track to track? I'm trying to replace my closet door rail and I have been to a number of stores and I can't find the right width. I measured from track to track and got 1 7/8". And my doors are 1 3/8" thick. I need to find a sliding door track that will fit my closet. What do you recommend?

What is the "track to track" measurement referring to? Is it the total width, shown in the above diagram as 2 11/32"?
A home owner from San Jose says:
I'm referring to the inside measurement, not the total measurement. The first track (for the first door) to the second track (for the second door). I want to buy a rail that is wide enough so the doors won't bump into each other or get stuck together.

A home owner from fort worth, tx says:
Hi, I want to make my own bypass doors and they will be 3/4" thick (each door) requiring a 3/8" offset rooler. Is their such a thing or should I take the 1/4" and recess it an 1/8"?

We have a few kits which include the rollers and the track. Check out our suggestions above.

They are normally meant for panels that are 1-3/8" thick, but I don't see why these kits won't work as long as your panels weigh less than 60 pounds each.
