That's its advantage ?

    I wonder if those axles have a shoulder turned in them to stop the axle going skewif or if its the wheel on the track that stops that ?

    Or it's 200 mm in one direction. The ratio of wheel diameter to axle diameter is also the ratio of door travel to slot length.

    The wheel on the track maintains the position of the axle. The over shot would be 200mm at either end as the axle would make its way to the end of the slot in no time at all and then rotate at the end of the slot as the wheel turned, until the door reached the stopper at the end of the track or the door was no longer being pulled across.
