    simple mechanism to open and close dual sliding Barn Doors

    Looking all over the internet for a "KIT" to no avail! Simple mechanism for dual barn doors that when you pull on 1 barn door the other door opens or closes with it! Dual sliding barn doors that you do not have to open 1 then open the other. Plus of course they close together when 1 door is closed. A simple pulley system with a twist? But how to make it both functional and look good or " cool". Thanks for any and all replies! Andy

    Picture a roller chain (bicycle chain) wrapped around two equal-size sprockets in a horizontal loop. The upper and lower strands travel in opposite directions. If you connect one door to the lower strand and one to the upper the doors would travel in opposite directions. Move either one and the other moves in the opposite direction.
