"My purpose in connecting the rail to the board and the track to the studding, in the manner described, is to permit the track to be adjusted or made level, and prevent its bending or getting out of order by uneven settling of the walls or otherwise. To render the track level I insert a screw-driver or wrench through the opening in top of the door-frame, and through which the door-suspension bolts pass and turn the screws..."
