We are actually going to install two of these. I ended up doing the pass through to our daughters room first. Currently there is a gate and a sheet. If you think the sliding door will be less private than clearly you've never heard how little a sheet stops a child's whining from proliferating in a plaster house.


Now we have even more privacy so chances are we will have another kid We made so many already just hiding behind a sheet!!




@PLUMB TIME It will have a lock.


It's Done!!!


As you can see, plenty of privacy



That trim board isn't level

Right. DUH. Wow. I cant believe I missed one there. I guess I thought they would need to be bigger spacers to go in the strut.

The bearings are a press fit onto the ends of the rod.


It could probably be loose and still work but generally anytime you put a roller bearing on a shaft it should be fixed to the shaft so the rollers to all the rolling.

Probably not. If this is becomes a permanent thing then I may move the switch to the outside wall. Right now the kid is young and having the switch covered can be a good thing. Sometimes she plays with it when she is in her crib and we have to pull the crib away from the wall. There's a second switch at the other doorway, they're wired up as three way switches.

I have a 50" tv hung in my hobby room on Unistrut. I used a ceiling tv mount, adapted it to unistrut with a roller. I can open my double french doors, slide the tv down the ceiling mounted 'strut and spin it around to face my patio. I'll find photos and post them.
