Replacing Mirror Sliding Closet Doors

Have any of you fellows or gals removed and replaced the stupid mirror sliding doors in you rig?

I have had one come loose from the hanger while in transit, I find the glass is not tempered and could have shattered all over the bed area.

The glass mirrow doors are 1/8" or less in thickness.

If you have any tips for doing this it will be appreciated hook or by crook I
intend to change these doors.

Personally I have never had an issue of them coming off the track. Not sure what i would do if they did. I guess i would try and figure out why and stop them. If you want to get rid of the mirrors them selves, I would suggest getting a couple of sheets of cabinet grade plywood and take the mirrors out, replaced by a nicely stained/painted piece of plywood.

Or instead of plywood, look for a piece of sculpted plexi glass. What you would find in some shower doors. I know I can buy those at one of our local HW stores in 4X8 sheets. Another option would be vented/louvered bi fold doors.

Our mirrored sliding doors used to come out of the bottom track. It was easy to replace the plastic slider in the track once I figured out how. The cause was, the factory had the sliding plastic guide adjusted too tight. We are going to replace one of them because the "silver" backing came off the glass, leaving some black spots in the mirror. I called a glass shop and they said just bring the door in for mirror replacement.

Mine came out as the Factory had them adjusted too high and that let them come out at the bottom of the track.
So after I got them back in, I adjusted them with the screw adjuster at the top until they fit into the bottom track deeper. It does take quite a bit of patience and several tries to get them adjusted, but I've not had them come out after 2 years of pulling.
