Working on getting these barn doors installed. I’ve got the 5055 hangers.

Looking at the attachment; what do you think the “1” max.” on the 2x8 refers to? I’m at a loss.

Maybe it is trying to keep the top lag bolt from being too close to the top edge? Seems like a goofy answer.

Hoping you guys have a better interpretation.
