I have installed many bi folds but your slide guide is a mystery. Your diagram does not adequately show where these pieces go in the track. The springs are contained IN THE PLASTIC casing so do not cushion the door. Where and how are the slide guides supposed to be installed? I need some help. Please call or email me explicit directions of where the slide guides go, how to install them etc. Why are the springs INSIDE the plastic????

Good morning, and thanks for posting! Did you have the 23-130 Bi-fold door top slide guide installed on your closet doors beforehand? Keep in mind that this part is meant as a replacement, not for a retrofit. If you had something different installed, it will likely not work.
Let me know!

I am trying to install the 23-130 bi-fold top slide guides into a new installation of bi-fold doors. The diagram is really no help whatsoever. Please send instructions of WHERE EXACTLY the slide guides are supposed to go. Thanks!

Thank you for your patience in this matter. Please take a look at the following diagram on how the 23-130 is installed.
As you can see, the 26-130 Bi-fold door top slide guide (B) is snapped into the top track (C). The top pivot (A) is inserted into the 26-130.
Does this help you?
