Slimfold Mirrored Bi-Fold Closet Door

A quick learner from Boynton Beach, Fl says:

The screw is stripped so I am unable to adjust any more. Please advise parts needed to fix.

Thanks,

Hello! If the only problem is that the screw is stripped, you may be able to get away with just replacing that plastic retainer. See our 21-154 for a potential replacement part and let me know what you think!

I think that is what I need. Thanks for the help. Also, if you have a video on how to adjust the doors to stay closed that would be helpful. Haven't found on you tube anything that works.
Thanks again,
Jim

Hey, Jim. I'm afraid that we don't have a video for the issue you describe, but I'll do my best to walk you through it.

First, remove the door from the track and lay it down on a stable surface. Loosen the screw in the 21-154 rod clamp and push the pin down while working the speed nut from the door frame. 

Once removed, remove the locking spring from the 21-001 pivot pin and slide the new pin up into the door, locking it with the bottom speed nut. 

Install the door on the track and adjust the 21-001, adjusting the pin until the door is squared and slides smoothly. Then tighten the screw on the 21-154 rod clamp and install the locking spring on top.

Let me know if you need clarification on any of these points.

Thanks for the suggestion. When I receive the parts I ordered I will see if that helps.
