To complete this DIY project, you will also need:

Mark the position of your door stopper

Open the sliding door at the desired position and leave it there (someone might have to hold it in place):

Mark the roller center on the aluminum track with a fine-point sharpie:

Close the door (so it’s out of the way) and place the stopper centered with the sharpie mark and in the roller path:

Trace the contour of the door stopper with a fine-point sharpie (3 sides should be enough):

Surface Preparation

As always when working with any adhesive, surface preparation is key when bonding material together.

Use coarse sandpaper (100 grit or so) and gently scuff the surfaces to be bonded (both the aluminum track and the door stopper). Then, use acetone or Isopropyl alcool to clean the surfaces to be bonded (try to not remove the sharpie marks, or keep a sharpie handy to mark again):

Roller track:

Bond the Door Stopper to the Aluminum Track

Squeeze a little JB Weld out of both tubes in equal portions (it doesn’t have to be perfect, but pretty close):

Use a small stick (wood, metal, etc) to mix both parts together:

Apply a thin layer of JB Weld on the lower surface of the door stopper (use a lint-free cloth to clean around the edges, to minimize squeeze out at next step):

Place the door stopper on the roller track and apply pressure for a few seconds. Let the adhesive cure for 24 hours. Resist the temptation to test or operate the door while curing!

Clean the sharpie marks and test:

We want to give credits to Traipsing About, he’s the one who came up with this idea back in 2014! There are a few people offering this product to this day, ours is very similar except it doesn’t have a logo on it and doesn’t come as a kit, hence the lower price tag. We could have just purchased one, but we thought it would be fun to make our own 🙂
