If you're using 1/4" material you can cut it a tad long and flex them a big to get in, then they sure won't come off track.
Very nice set-up...

Gives me some ideas, as I'm still in the "planning stages" of my interior.

I had loop handles on them at first, which I liked, but the little recessed buttons are more space-efficient. I have not noticed any rattling but other rattles in the van might mask the sliders' noise. You might consider a tambour (think rolltop desk) if both space and access are at stake.


And if I were doing this again I'd bring the bottom of the opening down to be flush with the top of the mattress for improved access to the lowest sections of the closet for things like boots and other bulky items.

Sorry for the double tap...

I'd delete it if I knew how.
