Spacer Extenders and/or Hex Bolts
If your door is between 2-1/8" and 2-1/4", you will require additional spacer extenders to modify the hardware kit to accommodate your doors. This will bring the track out from the wall so that the doors don't scrape against the wall when moving along the track. Please select your barn door hardware kit track length under "Spacer Extenders - Select Track Length". Each spacer extender is 3/8" thick and each order includes one spacer extender per wall spacer. For example a 6' kit will include 5 spacer extenders.
Doors less than 1-3/8" thick
If your door is less that 1-3/8" then you will need shorter hex bolts which mount the hanger to the door. This is because the bolts are fastened with an acorn nut. One option is to purchase washers from a local hardware store and place them between the back of the door and the top of the bolt. This will give you a tight fit between the nut and the door. If you choose this option, shorter hex bolts are not necessary. Spacer extenders are not necessary if your doors are thinner than 2-1/8".
Doors between 2-1/8" and 2-1/4" thick
If your door is between 2-1/8" and 2-1/4", you will require longer hex bolts which mount the hanger to the door. One alternative would be to wait until hardware kit arrives and then bring one of the hex bolts to a local hardware store and source the bolts yourself. If you choose this option, then you don't need to order longer hex bolts, only spacer extenders.
If you would like the longer (or shorter) hex bolts included in your order, please select "Hex Bolts - Select Number of Doors". If you are ordering Hex Bolts, please indicate the width of your doors in the "Notes" field at checkout.
