312bhx bathroom sliding door

we have a sliding door that goes from the bathroom to the master bedroom. It hangs on the interior of the bathroom wall, not a pocket door. The screws have stripped out of the slides and there is nothing in the wall to screw into. We had to pull the door off last summer but Im really missing it. Any ideas on a fix for this?

Two things come to mind. Either insert and make use of a couple of plastic wall anchors in the current stripped holes. Or insert a couple of wooden toothpicks in the hole to take up part of the opening of the stripped hole and rehang using the same screws. You can also use Elmers glue to hold the toothpicks in place.

Or bolt through the wall and use nice decorative nuts.

Same trailer here as well...love it!!

We actually removed the door so we had the wall space to hang wet towels.

I bought a nice tension rod and a curtain to hang.

Looks great, works great and easy to move out of the way. At night, it does not make any noise either.

Just a thought.

hey, that's an idea! do you have to take the tension rod down every time you put the slide in? not that its a big deal just wondering.

You know...i thought we were going to have to take it down every time...but it stays up just fine. I pull the curtain back and put it behind one of the hooks we use for towels (ended up with nice command hooks) and have not had an issue all last year.

It works well.

Btw - we bought the smallest tension rod we could find for a shower - wanted a larger diameter rod - it was too bid, so I took it apart and cut it shorter with a hack saw. Worked well.
