How do you put a sliding door back on track?
Insert the door’s wheels into the double track inside the upper door jamb, lifting it as far as it will go. Angle the bottom of the door toward you while you let it down, and the wheels should hook right onto the track. Release the door and let it swing gently back to the vertical position.
With or without bottom track? Sliding door hardware with a bottom track is preferred for sliding closet doors because the track is visible. It can create a barrier between separate rooms. A ceiling or wall-mounting is ideal for interior sliding doors or room dividers.
How much bigger should a barn door be than the opening?

How long should a barn door track be?
Whatever your measurement is for at least twice the width of the door, plus the extra 4 to 6 inches, that will be your minimum track length. To calculate, simply follow this equation: (width of door x 2) + (4 to 6 inches of space) = minimum track length.
