Here is some info that may help you
Thank you! The doors are older so they don't have a regular track like those but I appreciate the help!
Could you post a picture of the hardware your doors have so that we can see exactly what you have to work with?
If you can post a photo it may be easier to assess since the doors are old. So many changes we could help if we see what you are up against.
Hmm, I agree, a picture would be helpful. I have a very old house and I just checked our doors. They are mounted from the top with no track on the bottom. So you remove them from the top. It doesn't sound like that's your set up.
Hi, you don't have a bottom track? Just the groove? If possible, can you post a photo
Hold both sides of the door and Lift up and back towards you. That should remove them from the grove. Good luck!
Can you remove the nail?
Are you trying to save the doors? If not, hack them down with a mallet!
Hi Sierra, can you post a picture of the rail?
Haha - I was just thinking what Morgan said. Unless you want to save the doors - just demo them out with a saw or mallet!
I would remove the track and follow Maura's advice to take the doors out with a mallet if you can.
Hi! Remove the nail and whatever else holds in place, and you should be able to tip them out. Good luck!
following this questions ..would love to learn too
They went in in some fashion, they have to come out the same. Take a close look at the doors and hardware, see if things push in or unscrew. Ask your neighbors if they have similar homes. A little research online should turn up the answer or someone at your local home improvement store might know.
If anyone has figured it out please tell me I have a similar problem and would like to remove the closet doors
