Just ran across this the other day and thought the idea had some merit. Has anyone used this before?

They also recommend that the door runs on some Nylo-Tape to reduce friction. I'd probably inlet it into the bottom of the sliding door.

Why not just cut a block of UHMW and let it into the bottom piece, allowing the extended tab to ride on the UHMW material?  Tape is just so, well, inelegant...   [big grin]

Mine are opposite? In the sense that there's a pin in the floor and a groove in the bottom of the door. To me it's better than having a groove in the floor (or cabinet floor).
