And so it came to pass that I realized I had thrown away the rails to the closet doors. Which meant a Home Depot run was in my future. Normally this is a good thing, but with most runs to HoDes, once just isn’t enough.
I checked out the stock online then asked an associate about my only choice for closet rails.
Universal, he said.
Universal my foot. Someone’s pants are on fire.
It took me half a day to install one side of the rails and find out they don’t quite fit. Like I’d have to gouge out the wood floor or sand an 1/8 of an inch off the doors, kind of doesn’t fit.
Neither of those things was going to happen.
So checked on amazon. In the words of Kelly Bundy, “Topeka, I found it.”
The same style of rails that I’d taken down. When they arrived, I had to remove all the old ‘new’ hardware and install the original then hang the rails, and voila!
Closet doors hung in less than 30 minutes. The hubbinator came in to wrangle them into place.
Okay, I do have to make a few adjustments but other than that, it’s perfect. Lesson learned, stick with what you have.
Until next time.
