Sliding Closet Doors

Just bought a 372LOK. Was wondering how other people secures the master bedroom sliding closet doors when traveling. When we picked it up the dealer had to replace the bottom guide on one door, when we got it home both doors were laying on the bed and the other bottom guide was broke. Have searched the internet and have found better made guides, but was wondering what solutions other people have found.

Your doors should have a latch to lock it.

We have a 2017 343RSOK, our closet has a latch that holds the doors together when traveling, it is U shaped where one side is longer than the other on one door and a receiving hole on the other door. In addition there are locking posts at the top of both doors at each end. If you don't have these you might want to head back to the dealer and look at some other units. It appears you are missing some parts.

Hope this helps.

Mine is the same. But. the cheap plastic guides at the bottom allow the doors to slip out and then the bottom of the doors can swing freely. I thought someone may have found a better way to secure the doors when traveling.

I have the 357TRIP and noticed the same flimsy clips on the bottom and had one door come off so i am thinking about replacing them with something and haven't decided what that would be.

sliding closet doors

Can you put a screw in the track to stop the door from opening any further???

The issue doesn't seem to be from it sliding too far, it is the plastic u-shaped carrier on the bottom. It is very thin and flimsy.

I have put a screw in the rail mostly for keeping it from hitting the electrical outlet and cable/ant connection on the right side.

Perhaps some steel corner brackets placed back to back would be more sturdy. They would be higher to prevent jumping out. I would also dip coat them with rubber available at Lowe's or some other hardware store.

I notice the same thing on my 2018 372 lok. Specifically, the right door is always out of the track when I get where I'm going. I was thinking it may be the placement of the plastic track? Haven't fully investigated it yet.

Our dealer did move the brackets farther in on the doors. Seems to have helped.

Our sliding closet doors are about an inch thick and the guides at the bottom were probably 1 3/4 inches thick so it gave them lots of play. Only once (in two months) have they actually jumped out and come off the rail at the top.

But - I just this weekend installed these adjustable door guides for a much better fit: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1



Seems much more secure now - we'll see how it reacts on the road.
