Installation Instructions For the Following Osborne Barnfold Hardware Part numbers: 4942.64 4942.52 4942.40 4942.28
The Barnfold hardware system provides the movement of our barn doors with the convenience of a track which does not extend beyond the width of the opening. We suggest measuring your opening from outside of the casing, which allows the doors to completely cover your opening. If there is no trim, add 1” to the width and ½” to the height measurement. With this overall dimension, determine if you want 2 or 4 doors.
All doors using the barnfold system must be hinged to create a bi-fold door. (We recommend using piano hinges.) You will need to mount one stationary hanger on one side of the doors, and one articulating hanger on the other side of the bi-fold doors. On the bottom of the doors, your bracket is mounted to be used with the pivot hinge.
The track is located above the opening, mounted and the barnfold system is complete. All hardware components are included with your BARNFOLD hardware kit. All track mounting hardware is included with the track kit. We recommend installing the track, and stationary hangers on a ledger board over the head casing, to ensure a strong attachment to the wall.
STEP 1: INSTALL THE HINGES BETWEEN DOORS
Place doors face down and square top edge. Allow 1/8”space between doors and secure hinge mechanism.
STEP 2: INSTALL BOTTOM BRACKET ON OUTSIDE CORNER.
The bottom bracket has two 1/8” holes and one 5/16” hole. Place bracket on bottom outside corner with 5/16” hole located 1” from outside edge of door and centered on bottom rail. Install ¾” screws and drill through the 1/4” hole 1/2” into the door stile.
STEP 3: INSTALL BARNFOLD STATIONARY HANGER
The stationary hanger is installed on the top edge of the door with the bottom bracket. Place the hanger on the face of the door, with the holes 1-1/4“ from the outside edge. Allow a small space between the pivot and the top of the top of the door (1/16” recommended), and mark the 2 bolt holes. Drill 3/8” holes through the door where marked, and install anchors from the back side of door. Use small washer and bolt the hanger in place.

STEP 4: INSTALL BARNFOLD ARTICULATING HANGER
On the opposite top door edge, install the articulating hanger. Place the hanger on the face of the door, with the holes 1-1/4” from the outside edge. Allow a small space between the pivot and the top of the door (1/16” recommended), and mark the 2 bolt holes. Drill 3/8” holes through the door where marked, and install anchors from the back side of the door. Use small washer and bolt the hanger in place.

STEP 5: LOCATE ASSEMBLED DOORS IN OPENING AND INSTALL PIVOT BRACKET
Center assembled doors in the opening and mark the outside bottom corners. Depending on the operation of the doors, install the outside edge of the “L” bracket ½” in from the mark, flush with the wall. If using the straight pivot bracket, install outside edge ½”from the mark, and the pivot 1-5/8” from the front edge of the opening. Carefully install pivot bracket in this position with ¾” screws.( typically for floor mounting )
STEP 6: INSTALL TRACK
Place assembled doors on the pivot bracket and mark the top edge of the door on the wall. Measure up 2-1/4” and make a mark—this will be the top edge of the track. Locate your track on this mark, level your track, and mark the end holes. Drill 1/8” holes and lag track to the wall or ledger board. Drill and fasten the remaining lags. Use the 1- 3/8” spacer on the back of the track, and a flat washer on the front.
STEP 7: INSTALL DOORS IN OPENING
Place barnfold assembly on pivot, with the stepped roller on the track. Center stationary hanger and mark the hole location through the wheel on the wall. Drill a 1/8” guide hole at this location. Using a flat washer, 5/16” x 4” lag bolt, ½” spacer, stationary hanger, and 1-1/4” spacer lag the assembly in place. Do not tighten at this time. Check that the movement of the barnfold system allows you to close and fully open, then tighten all fasteners.
