Eclisse pocket door wobble .

Recommended Posts

Hate this door - worst thing on the entire build .

Anyway !

This supplied piece was meant to be fixed in the frame at the base to stop the door to stop wobbling as it slides out . As everything was a PITA I left it out - until now 🙄

It won’t fit . There’s no way I am taking the door off . Whilst I might stick brushes down the sides to fill the vertical gaps and stop crap going in there I still need to fit a “ anti wobble “ device at the base . Any sensible suggestions welcome apart from ct1 sticking it as in the photo !!

You definitely need it, or you could fit a couple of plastic slide pads in the slot but they will leave marks on the door as it slides past them.

Take the door out and do it properly

Yes I think you may want to trim the metal threshold.  The lugs on the side of the plate look a bit crap.  I guess they were to locate it in the frame, for the benefit of those installers who follow the instructions...

 

If it looks really crap you could maybe get something from a shower that would work, but your glass looks quite thick.

Why has that base plate got funny stick out bits at the ends. Cut em off!!!,  cut the threshold strip so it sits flat on the tiles, drill and countersink and use two stainless screws into the floor/tiles. 👍

Don’t (expletive deleted)ing start ! . I had 7 sets of instructions and 4 different slider mechanisms supplied ! Eclisse were zero help as they just send all the instructions out as there’s so much variation . They are (expletive deleted) wits . I’m hot and fed up so @Mr Punter leave me alone 🍷

Yeah but then it will be outside the frame I.e visible . Really want to get it in the shitty frame

OK.

 

Just wondering, would you recommend the Eclisse pocket door system to others?

Looks like the wheels are too big to do that?

Yeah . I found a slightly smaller wheel . So 1 ‘ as is wheel ‘ and one smaller wheel will *just* fit ( less than 1mm of play ) 💪😉👍

If you rotate the plate slightly it might be possible to close up even the 1mm gap.

Yes . Getting it in the frame and placed correctly will require God like skills

If you did make up your own wheels and plate to fit in the pocket how would you fix it with zero space to get your fingers/drill/screws (unless to CT1,d it)?

Tom Cruise here , I’ve borrowed pocsters account for a bit .

After hours of prep , some dry run thru’s - we finally went for it . Absolute silence on the set as I do the most extreme and skilful stunt I’ve ever performed. Remember this scene from my next movie “Mission Impossible: Glass door dilemma “ ( rated 18 - due to extreme scenes of a DIY nature )

Nice job!

 

You could dye the wheels piss yellow to match the feature grout.

we used a kit from howdens on a pair of oak sliders, it had a small metal pin that you fixed into the bottom edge of the door and it located in a small runner inside the 'pocket' part on the floor. worked ok, still a bit of flap at full extension but workable.
