Everbilt sliding door hardware set.

Anyone ever install one of these closet door sets from Home Depot. It's marked on the package that it will work for 3/4" to 1 3/8" doors. I tried to install one for a customer today on some 1 3/8" Luan doors. It was some old doors where there had been a sliding door tract there already. I put up the new tract and them put the rollers on the doors and went to hang them and it wouldn't work. I took the rollers off the doors and put them on the tract and there was only 1 1/8" space between the rollers. There is no way those could have been used on a door thicker than a inch without mortising the hinges into the door on the back.

Try reversing the hangers
The B in the back and A in front

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short.

The hangers only go on one way. The only way to make it work would be to mortise the hangers into the door on the door on the back. As big as the hangers are I doubt if there is enough wood to do that.

Wow
I made a cabinet with sliding doors and used the HD sliding door track for 3/4to 1 3/8" doors. The hangers were interchangeable for the different thickness doors in the tracks.

I must have used a different track. I didn't think HD had that many choices.
