Hackers Help: Can I turn PAX hinge door to slider?





Pax vikedal mirror door

I got the PAX Vikedal (mirror) door with hinges. Any ideas how to turn them into sliding doors? Seems slider option only available on the larger pax unit.

    Hi I’ve done this with exactly that door! Like the poster above I bought the slider gear from another outlet ( I got mine online as I don’t live in the us)

    (Trying to upload a photo but I can’t!)

    I used (3) 19 inch doors as sliders for a closet in my home. I just bought the hardware from Home Depot. If you are using the doors on a Pax unit, you may be able to do the same thing but you will need to add wood on the top / outside of the unit in order to attach the track. You would have to do this since the door does not fit and can not slide inside the unit. Hope this helps.

    Hi, i don’t think you can make it work with the original Pax parts except glueing the Mirrors to the Pax Frames.

    alternatively you might get some ideas from that Post:

    good luck,
