Michael writes: I've read on your site about the Pax sliding door hack. I'm thinking of doing it myself, but have a question as to whether a further hack is needed or necessary. I'm going to do two sets of doors. So the 59" sets are probably my best bet. But what I'd like to do is be able to have the doors be able to move between sets. In other words...

...normally, I'd have a left and right sliding door on each set and each would slide to the other area to "double up? but would never give a complete opening.

What I'd like to do is be able to move both the left-left and left-right doors all the way over and behind (or in front as the case may be) the left-right and right-right doors.

I think it would be a matter of having the tracks perfectly aligned to allow this, but I've yet to get out to IKEA to confirm this.

If you guys know, I'd LOVE to know.

Please share any Pax info with Michael in the comments below...thanks!
