If for any reason you feel like you can’t give us a positive review, please contact us at [email protected] and let us know what we can do to get you added to the list of happy and completely satisfied CDM customers.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Before installation, doors should always be stored flat and on a level surface. Doors should never be leaning against a wall or not properly supported, as this may cause warpage, especially if doors are acclimating to a new interior climate/humidity level. Door hinges and rollers should be lubricated every 6 months. We recommend a dry lubricant. Look for a Teflon or Dry lubricant. Spray each hinge sparingly from both front and back and wipe off excess. A little will go a long way. The doors will work very smoothly for their lifetime if they are properly lubricated.

MIRROR MAINTENANCE
DO NOT USE AN AMMONIA BASED CLEANING PRODUCT. These will shorten the life of the mirror by creating a dark edge or dark spots over time. The most important thing to remember is to use an alcohol or water based cleaner. There are many fine aerosol and liquid products at your local retailer.

LIFETIME HARDWARE WARRANTY
The Custom Door and Mirror (CDM) Warranty is a statement of confidence to our customers to the reliability of CDM’s products, which are designed and manufactured to the highest standards in quality, appearance and durability. This warranty reflects a tradition of excellence and a commitment to superior manufacturing and innovative design dedicated to you, our customer. This warranty is our pledge to you that we will proudly stand behind our products. CDM warrants our hardware for its lifetime to be free from defects in materials and craftsmanship. This Lifetime Warranty applies to the original owner/purchaser of the CDM product and is not transferable.This includes hardware, hinges, rollers, guides and handles for the natural life of the product. CDM reserves the right to repair, replace, or refund the original purchase price, at its option, any hardware found to be defective. Proof of purchase required.

ADDITIONAL WARRANTY
In addition, CDM warrants the remaining components to be free from defects in materials and workmanship upon inspection, and proof of purchase, will repair, replace, or refund the original purchase price, at its option, if any components are deemed to be defective by a representative of CDM. This includes door panels, tracks, trim, etc. There are no additional warranties, expressed or implied, which extend beyond the description on the face hereof, including the implied warranty of fitness and the implied warranty of merchantability.

WHAT THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER
Broken mirrors, shipping damage, negligence, improper handling/storage, or any costs associated with repairing or replacing a product found to be defective. This warranty is applicable to original owner and only when the products covered by it have been installed in accordance with the recommended written installation instructions supplied by CDM and with established building practices. In addition, the warranty is applicable only if the CDM products have been accorded treatment which is considered good practice in the building industry regarding storage and maintenance and have been subjected only to normal use. Instances that involve improper installation, accident, natural disaster, corrosive air, outdoor use, or product that has been altered will not be covered. Because CDM cannot control the way its products are handled after leaving its premises, this warranty does not apply to the finish or other damage occurring during shipment. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty bestows certain legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

TOOLS REQUIRED CDM-Custom-Door-and-Mirror-FIG5

STEP 1
DETERMINE YOUR PIVOT & PREP THE TRACK
Slide and loosely secure plastic PIVOT BLOCK onto METAL TRACK Ensure that the hole in the Pivot Block goes in the track closer to the edge and at the side which you prefer your doors to open toward. The Flat surface of the METAL TRACK is the front and it faces to the room. The PIVOT BLOCK should be 1” from the edge of the track and loosely tighten the hex screw for now. For 4 door openings you will need to repeat this process on the opposite end of the track too.  CDM-Custom-Door-and-Mirror-FIG6STEP 2
MOUNT UPPER TRACK
Attach WOOD BLOCK straight up to header of closet opening using 2 – 2” black WOOD SCREWS M  Block should sit 1/4” back from the front edge of the closet door  opening. With the flat side of the track facing the room push the METAL TRACK over the WOOD BLOCK for snug fit. Cut aluminum track with a hacksaw if necessary. Make sure that pivot block is positioned on the side you want the door to open towards. Loosely fasten track to the block using two #8 SCREWS N through the two holes on the inside of the track.  CDM-Custom-Door-and-Mirror-FIG7

STEP 3
MOUNT FLOOR HARDWARE
Place OAK SADDLE C on the floor, 1/4” back from closet opening front edge to align with METAL TRACK above. Pre-drilled holes in OAK SADDLE go on the same side as the plastic PIVOT BLOCK. The door opens to the left, and holes go on the left. The door opens to the right, holes go on the right. Don’t fasten the SADDLE to the floor until the end of the installation. Lay METAL FLOOR PLATE D over holes drilled in OAK SADDLE (slotted holes in plate face inside closet opening). Fasten plate to saddle using 2 – #8 screws through slots in the metal floor plate. Do not tighten them down yet completely. We may need to adjust left or right CDM-Custom-Door-and-Mirror-FIG8STEP 4
MOUNT DOOR HARDWARE
Next open your door & lay it face down. Drop SPRING F into hole on top of the door; door opening to left use hole in top left & vice versa for door opening to the right. Slide rounded end of TOP PIVOT PIN G up through TOP PIVOT BRACKET H Mount this assembly over spring hole as shown. Fasten assembly to back of door using two #8 SCREWS & test for correct installation by pushing the PIVOT PIN G into door. Pin should now be spring-loaded. Fasten ROLLER BRACKET E at top of door 1/4” from edge opposite of the pivot bracket using 2 – #8 SCREWS. Screw ADJUSTING BOLT into BOTTOM PIVOT BRACKET all the way up so the door would sit as low as possible. Insert this assembly into hole at bottom of door on the same side as TOP PIVOT  BRACKET .Fasten BRACKET to bottom back of door using 2 – #8 SCREWS  CDM-Custom-Door-and-Mirror-FIG9STEP 5
INSTALL DOOR
Fold doors together & stand upright. Lift at an angle to fit PIVOT PIN into groove/hole in PIVOT BLOCK & ROLLER into track (1). You may hear the spring-loaded pin “pop” into the hole. Lift to fit bottom ADJUSTING BOLT into cup on METAL FLOOR PLATE (2). Sometimes it helps to have a 2nd person down low to help find the cup. Make sure that the roller stays in the top track. Close door slowly, making sure that there is at least 3/16” clearance between edge of door & wall. If not adjust PIVOT BLOCK and/or METAL FLOOR PLATE left or right accordingly.  CDM-Custom-Door-and-Mirror-FIG10STEP 6
ADJUST
To adjust HEIGHT alignment, turn bottom ADJUSTING BOLT to desired height. Use 5/16” wrench to adjust screw. Lock height adjustment by screwing one #8 SCREW into smallest hole at back of BOTTOM PIVOT BRACKET. Now you can fasten the saddle permanently to the floor. For wood floors we recommend 10d finish nails, first pre-drill holes using 1/8” bit to prevent wood from splitting. Cement floors require construction adhesive. To adjust WIDTH alignment, fold and hold doors firmly in place and loosen hex head screws on PIVOT BLOCK and METAL FLOOR PLATE. Position doors side to side, plumb and level, for best fit and re-tighten PIVOT BLOCK and METAL FLOOR PLATE. CDM-Custom-Door-and-Mirror-FIG11STEP 7
TIGHTEN, CLEAN & ENJOY
Place wrap-around Handle K approx. 39” from bottom of pivot panel. On a door that opens to the LEFT, the pivot panel is the one on the LEFT. For doors that open to the RIGHT, the pivot panel is the one on the RIGHT. Fasten it to back of door using 1 – #8 SCREW. Now go back and make sure everything you’ve left loose for the adjustments is tightened down. Aligners for 4-door units – Install 2 sets of DOOR-TO-DOOR ALIGNERS L on the back of each meeting panel. One set about a ½” up from the bottom and one set about 36” from the bottom. These will keep your doors nice and flush with each other.  CDM-Custom-Door-and-Mirror-FIG12
