I have couple of sliding doors left over from a remodel and want to
hang them in the garage to hide a messy shelving unit. However I can't
find the metal bracket to hang the sliding doors on. The doors have
wheels at the top and bottom. The originall hung from a metal bracket
whose profile (side view) looked like this

The wheels of the sliding door rested in the V and took all the
weight. I need 20 ft of this. Home Dumpo doesn't have it - they have a
entire kit for hanging doors which looked flimsy.
Any ideas what kind of store would carry this ? I stay in bay area, CA
and would prefer local.
If you can live with 2 side-by side rails that make the same profile, any
metal shop that makes custom ductwork should be able to make up sticks for
you on their metal brake. This isn't a barn door, after all, so the thicker
gauges of galvanized should be thick enough. Basically just a sheet metal L
with the long leg folded over. If the doors are light enough, they could
even put the mounting flanges on the outside. But before trying that, I'd
try a commercial steel vendor that advertises selling bar and rod stock.
They may have something close enough to work.
Wow. Custom metalwork for re-used doors in a garage seems a little
extreme. I bought a sliding door kit for about $20 at a lumber yard
here (NYC) a few weeks ago. It comes with a top track, the rollers for
2 doors and a small guide "clip" for the floor. It was very easy to
Your lucky day. My new Blaine window catalog came today. I think the
closet door by-pass track may do the job for you. Check at Lowes or HD
first and look where the door and window hardware is stored or call Blaine
at 1-800-678-1919 to get a catalog. Blaine does have the replacement track
for the rollers at the bottom of glass doors. Lowes may not have that.
