I am the new owner of an existing home. An interior door leading to the de
n has a mullion grid to create the effect of being 15 smaller glass panels.
The basic door and mullion grid are wood. This grid is very loose. Appear
s that previous owners removed the grid when cleaning. The grid itself hel
d in place by grid pin retainers such as this:
I'm suspecting these were originally installed improperly. The mullion gri
d frame currently holds both the pins and the receivers. As such only a ve
ry small portion of the pin actually makes contact with the door structure
itself. Seems that the door ought to be where the receiver resides. That
way the pin would pass through the mullion grid until joining the receiver
portion that rests in the door. Am I correct? The graphic on the packagin
g is very unclear in this regard.
Might there be better alternatives? Such as using Velco pads? Considering
the very light weight of the mullion grid itself might this or a similar m
eans make more sense?
Some door manufacturers just stick them on with silicone. This means,of
course, that they are a real PITA to paint and a slightly lesser one to
clean. If you want to be able to remove them, try carpet tape. SMALL
pieces and not too many.
