How do you level and plumb a sliding glass door?
The question is a little confusing. If the floor is level you just put the bottom of the sliding glass door track on the floor. With the stationary section of glass in place the one side of the door should now be quite plumb and all you have to do is attach that part of the frame to the house. On the other hand, if you are asking about a door that is already installed and are wanting to plumb the slider, there should be two screws near the bottom of the door sides and two screws near the top. In order to turn the bottom screws it may be necessary to relieve pressure from the top screws and slightly lift the bottom of the door. Adjust the door so that it is parallel to either the stationary glass or the side frame, whichever side has the locking mechanism. LEVEL equalls left to right.....so place door in a bed of silicone greater than the amount the existing floor is out and shim the appropriate side up until the top of door from left to right is level PLUMB is vertical....... top to bottom and left to right with in one side of the jamb;;;jamb must be plumb in both direction and on both sides of jamb within a straight lin of itself for it to be SQUARE....
Plumb as in "Plumb a door frame or cabinet?" Plumb is having something 90 degrees to level. The floor is level and the door frame, the vertical, up and down part is plumb in relationship to that. I'm sure this term comes from using a Plumb Bob. That's a heavy pointed ball on a string.. It will always show you the plumb line. Haven't heard the term used in plumbing.
The plumb bob is useful in establishing vertical for a wall in construction or a doorjamb when hanging a door. It can indicate whether a flue is running true vertical or veering off plumb. A plumb-bob or a plummet is a weight, usually with a pointed tip on the bottom, that is suspended from a string and used as a vertical reference line, or plumb-line. It is essentially the vertical equivalent of a water level.

What is the likelihood of a tempered glass sliding door imploding spontaneously without significant temperaturepressure changes between outside and inside?
All rough openings for doors or windows should be as close as possible to plumb and square or your door or window wont be able to be installed properly. As long as you have enough room in the opening to iinstall it square and plumb it'll work fine but if your opening is way out of true, even if you install the window level and plumb it just wont look right.

Safety Measures for Glass Doors Other than mere decoration, stickers on a large glass (a door or a large window) will indicate that the glass is there and help prevent anyone from walking or bumping into it. Under some lighting conditions, it is nearly impossible to see transparent window glass. This is one reason why sliding glass doors are now made of safety glass, highly tempered glass, or plexiglass.
Can you use a rough opening for a prehung interior door that is only 1 34 wider than the door itself?
Sure you can, as long as its 1 3/4" bigger uniformly top to bottom. 2 "s is ideally better since with the extra width you can tilt the door to allow for out of plumb openings, but as long the opening is plumb, or if not, you don't care that it's not perfectly plumb, then go for it! You're just going to have a little less room to play with.
In this level, you have to spell out "HALLOWEEN" with the letters and missing letters. Imagine the door is a keyboard. Sliding left will reveal more letters and sliding right will reveal more as well. There are 3 screens total. The placement of the blank letters is similar to your keyboard.
