Sometimes two screws into a stud, and a dab of silicone works too if you don't want to drill tile or something. If it's a bare slab, you may want to use the blocks to be sure the doors will clear finished floor covering. ( high pyle carpet)

I just did a whole house with the bedrooms carpet on slab..

Before the carpet layer came, I glued pieces of 5/8 ply under where the pivots would be.

He ran the pad up to the edges of the blocks, then carpet over the whole thing, and the screwable plate disappears:thumbsup:

I do it on regular subfloor also, so they don't try to sink down into the pad when you anchor the pivots...

If it's on carpet, glue down a 3/4" wood block. If on concrete hard floor, screw to wall, & glue small block just a little wider (1/8-1/4 ea side) bigger than the pivot guide. Then glue inside & short screws. Screws will work loose, glue don't.
