Sliding door

Post by greycaster on Tue Jun 06, 2017 6:06 pm

We had issues with our side door sliding either forwards or backwards depending on the slope of the ground. We fitted one half of a small round self adhesive Velcro tab to the top rail, works a treat and the door is still easy to open/close. Best thing it cost about 10p a lot cheaper than a stopsy.

Which half did you use? The soft hairy side, or the long 'toothed' side?

Sounds a good idea for gentle slopes.

Soft hairy side, made sure the rail was clean. If you ease the door up to the stop it will hold even on steep slopes.

Toothed side for me works a treat. But working on a st/steel plate similar to the stoppsy to fit soon.
