Standard BiSlide Assemblies have two adjustable
limit switches in a track on the side. They're specified by
either "21" or "31" at the end of the model
An optional third limit switch can be added between the two
and used as an adjustable home switch.
Limit switches can be omitted on the second side of a parallel
coupled BiSlide assembly. To do this, change your model number
from "21" to "20" or "31" to "30".
