We have sliding pantry doors with a strange bottom track (house was built in the early 80s). It's not a double-square-U like normal closet doors. It's a double slot, each of which is kind of like a keyhole slot. Plastic pieces at the bottoms of the doors snap into the slots.

We'd like to replace the track, but I haven't found anyone who knows what it is, let alone where to get it.

Does anyone know what it's called, or where we might find it?

Thanks.

They're bi-pass. They have the normal sheaves on top in a J track, but this funny track at the bottom with a slot for each door.

just an idea, but perhaps its a system like you might find in heavier (can't just hang them because of their weight) mirrored door bi-pass tracks? I've seen some unusual channel systems for such doors that don't look like the regular "hang only from above" type tracks with floor guides. Another possiblity might be that they modified a shower door bi-pass track. Not really sure what you are describing you have, but a possibility was thinking might help you in your "replacement search".

That's a good idea: I'll check both ideas.

Thanks very much for the suggestions.

I also did a rough drawing, and put it in a dark page on my web site: http://www.wisefam.com/homepic.

take a peek at the adobe file here at the stanley sight. Check the middle of page NINE on the right side (I think it referenced 30 lb or 60 lb doors). See if THIS kind of matches your situation:

Unless I misread something on the pdf, those seem to be top tracks. I went to the Stanley site (a great idea), but wasn't able to find it: all their door sets have guides at the bottom, not tracks.

Thanks very much for the suggestions.

try this site: http://wwhardware.com

Click on the link near the bottom for sliding door hardware/systems. Try either the glass door system (epco) , or under miscelaneous Door Hardware, I think the misc track MIGHT be what you're describing, OR the glass door track system. Your web link pic is now gone, so I couldn't go back and look again, and it was a while. In both cases you can click on the applications links on the right side of each page for dimentions and a cross section view.

Hope this helps. If not try calling them at 800-383-0130. Might help.

Thanks a million. The KV looks like it.

I appreciate it. I also love that Woodworker's Hardware site.

BTW, I don't know why the drawing disappeared from my website: I didn't remove it, but I just checked and it's certainly gone. I'll have to check my ISP.

Thanks again.
