E-Z Glide Tracks-Aluminum
Give a cabinet a dramatic look with sliding glass doors! These E-Z tracks make it possible, with dual channels for a pair of 1/4" glass doors. Includes an aluminum upper glide, shoe, track, and nylon rollers for a smooth, glide when opening or closing. Choose from Bronze or Aluminum to match the look you're going for. You may also choose from 3 or 4 feet and cut to length with a hacksaw for a custom fit. Use with our Extruded Aluminum Pulls.
So, I went online & searched.
Rockler's product resulted & it seemed perfect. Then, the bonus was that Rockler has a store in my metro area. When I went there, I found the staff very friendly & very helpful. They agreed that these glides were just what I needed. Though none were onhand, they offered to have them shipped directly to my house.
The shipment arrived rather quickly, but were stolen off my porch
(verified). Although no fault of Rockler, they sent a repacement at no charge.
VERY fortunate to have found such an outstanding company. Hat's off to Rockler.
And love my sliding mirror door again. Install was ezpz.

The major issue is installing the piece of aluminum extrusion and the rubber gasket, or maybe it's vinyl, onto the bottom of the glass. This is an extremely tight fit onto 1/4" glass. I lubricated the parts with silicone fist and tried to use a rubber mallet to tap, make that pound, it into place. No such luck. One end would start to go on and as you moved down the track, that end would pop back up. I tried soapy water, no luck.
Finally, I figure it was going get it onto the glass, or the mirror was going to break, one way or the other! I took the glass and used a block of wood on each end of the mirror and furniture clamps to press fit the track and gasket onto the frame. Even this would not work until I sprayed the track and gasket with silicon lube, AND used a heat gun to warm the aluminum track. Finally, this method worked. If only I knew this method before hand, it would have saved me much cursing and frustration. So, now you know.
All-in-all, I use this product again, now knowing how to fit the dang nab track to the mirror.
Thank you for your time!
