STATIONARY DOOR MOVES OUT OF JAMB

The immovable stationary panel(s) of a wood-core sliding patio door system should be secured to the jamb, however, over the years, if not secured properly, it can work its’ way out of the jamb revealing an air gap. These panels are usually kept in place by angle brackets at the top and bottom of the panel edge where it meets the movable sliding door. Often, these angle brackets are missing, broken or bent.  Small galvanized angle brackets found at the hardware store may not be a sufficient replacement to secure the panel.
