adjusting the hanging roller doors angle

Postby Cliffm » January 14th, 2019, 10:35 am

We have a 2006 Carver 36MY. Our aft cabin door and aft cabin head door are both "out of plumb" with the door frame.

I assume the top rollers are adjustable, and the side closest to the latch is to be adjusted for striker height, followed by the opposite side for door way frame match (aka plumb)

So my question is: how in the heck do you get to the top of door adjusting threaded shafts while its hanging inside the roller track? I'd really love a picture of someone adjusting these?

As always, your feedback is much appreciated.

I cant say for sure not having seen your particular doors, but sometimes there is an adjustment on the side face of the door. Have a look at the top and bottom of the same side as the latch faces. Wow what a terrible instruction but I hope you get what I mean, may just be a screw near the corner.....good luck.

Some setups will provide access to adjustment screws while others require that you remove the door, adjust, then install the door again and check the fit. Depends on the hardware you have. I assume you're checking this with the boat in the water correct?....makes a difference. Let us know how you make out.

Thanks, yes it's in the water, i don't see any readily accessible way to reach hardware while door is hanging, so I'll assume I must remove, adjust, and re-hang.

So this brings the "how do you remove" question, as I don't see enough slop in the track to go up/out like a sliding glass door? is there another trick?

I can't imagine they changed the hardware much, ours's is a 2006, so any one adjust there's that has 2000 to 20009?

When in doubt call Carver. I have found them very helpful regarding specifics about my boat.

I havn't called Carver yet, but critically looked at door hangers. The threaded adjuster goes up to roller assy, the door top has slotted plate that captures the disc end/head of the bolt. So it would appear that you slide the door off this disk to remove it, adjust the bolt head for desire height, then re-hang the door.

I'll call carver before I attempt this, but having a better understanding of its function helps.

update: In order to adjust the door to striker position/and or frame angle requires adjusting the roller height inside the the track. This is near impossible to get to as the adjuster nut is on top of the door inside the track.

solution: The track is (2) pieces, so close the door and then remove the accessible track piece so that when you open the door it will expose the roller adjustment nut. Close the door (almost) measure desired offset for striker alignment, then open the door to drop roller assembly to and adjust threaded portion to align. Re-close, verify striker alignment, then adjust second roller for door alignment to frame. Once all adjustments are made and verified, close door and re-install open door track portion.

As I was informed earlier, its best to do this with vessel in water and with typical fuel/water capacity's to compensate for vessel flex.

thanks to all for input & Tips!
