    Default Bifold door question

    Hi, I have an existing bifold door. I want to change it's configuration so the last panel hinges, so it's acting more like a permanent wall, with a door on the end. So I think I can achieve what I want by moving the attachment from the left end of the left-most panel to the left end of the second panel from the left. But I have no idea how to remove the attachment to work out how it works. There's a little plastic clip under a nut, and the clip swings out to the side, but not sure what to do after that. Photos below. Any ideas?

    Pull the clip off, lift the door slightly then push the support to one side, it has a keyhole mechanism holding it in, the clip is to stop it jumping out while moving.
    Sometimes these can be a little bugger to slide across, but it will slide and unlock.
