    If everything is square like you say, that means the side is warped. The brackets would reinforce and help the unit stay square. They will not fix the warp. You are probably going to have to replace the entire panel.

    Re: How to fill up a gap for a warped sliding door?

    I'll put a level on the left side, but I'm 99% sure it's a 90 degree angle, because the glass door has no gap when closed, not even a little bit (or else I would have noticed and posted about it too). And there's no way for glass to warp. I mean, I can take a pic for proof, but lol.

    It sounds like what would work best is buying those L metal support thingies and putting it on the right side, and then filling up the gap with a wood piece. I assume putting it on the outside and not the inside, right?



    thanks! It's more convenient for me, because I draw on the computer for a living.
    Not sure now

    Your sketch looked as though the wood on the right side has warped outwards so the new piece of wood or plastic would go INSIDE so the glass door would slide up to it ...

    That's how I interpretted the sketch anyway .

    If the panel is warping inwards the piece would go INSIDE - as I see things .
