I have an application where bi-fold doors are used to separate main living rooms in a large house for college students. The doors are not used like regular doors but they get a lot of use. The standard hardware originally installed were for a closet application and just finally came apart. This hardware set is heavy duty and I expect it to last for many years to come, and doors operate smooth and quiet. The hardware is designed so that the full weight of the doors hang primarily from the track, and the track is heavy duty. The hinges are designed to maintain even gaps between doors (with standard hardware, all the weight bears at one bottom bracket, forcing the weight of doors to put undue stress at top bracket and hinges). The only two downsides to this set is: 1) the installation instructions are somewhat confusing. I made a couple of mistakes on the first install (I did 3) before realizing what the instructions were trying to say. 2) The door mount brackets with this kit are top-mount which means your screws go into the top of the door. Since the door panels hang, if the door material is not solid (for ex: if its like the edge of hardboard or particle board) they will not hold due to the weight of the door panel. What I had to do was order additional side-mount brackets and use machine screws to go all the way through the door. This works great, except I had to order these brackets from the manufacturer. It was easy enough to do, but an extra step. The price for the kit itself was much lower at Home Depot than from the manufacturer, but I would recommend that Home Depot sell the kit with side-mount brackets instead of top-mount. If a person wants heavy duty hardware, its probably because their doors are heavier! NOTES: Make sure your track is perfectly level, even if what your mounting it to is not (use shims, etc). If the track is off, it will mess everything else up. Also, if you're replacing existing hardware, it is not a quick changeout. Because this hardware has a taller dimension, the doors will probably need to be trimmed.
I was very pleased with the handles we ordered. They matched the design of my new cabinets perfectly. They are well made and a solid quality product.
An attractive item which was great value for money. I will certainly use these on my next renovation.
I was looking for something to cover up the dark stains where my old cabinet hardware had been. A salesman in the store helped my to find exactly what I needed that I did not even know existed. It allowed me to purchase the crystal knobs that I had my heart set on, but I didn't know how to make it work. He figured it out with much patience and was very entertaining in the process.
They are beautiful!!! They are heavy weight-not chinzy and cheap feeling-and a look that compliments many cabinet styles and colors. We are doing a country kitchen with Hickory Spice cabinets with the cottage style slatted doors. Adding the Weathered Iron(like cast iron skillets) made it even more cozy and country like!
These are amazing knobs. They are better in person. Very satisfied.
just see the picture. the paint went off after 6 month of frequent usage
I used these on my antique white cabinets in my new kitchen and I am so pleased. The contrast really adds interest and the slightly burnished, copper tones in the handles look very rich against the creamy white. Best of all, they didn't cost a complete fortune. The only drawback was that the sizes were metric so I had to order a special template but it was worth it when it was done.
Product is of excellent quality. Size, color and weight are perfect. Looks every nice on our cabinet, and installation was a breeze.
Very satisfied with these knobs. They are just the right weight and look great on my cabinet.
I certainly would order again! Quality and price were great. Excellent service. The finish of the knobs was exactly the color of the knobs I purchased a year ago. Just added a few more cabinets, so these were perfect.
JUST HAD NEW CABINETS INSTALLED AND THESE KNOBS WERE THE PERFECT FINISHING TOUCH. VERY SOLID AND STURDY WITH A GREAT DISTRESSED FINISH.
Easy to install & they look great on my bathroom vanity doors & drawers. Daughter's choice of pulls really upgraded the looks & functionality of the cabinetry.
They are cheap looking and very thin. I will be returning them. They were bought on line.
We recently turned some old french doors into dual bypass doors using this track system. Install was really easy and everything worked out perfectly. We thought connecting the doors to the track was going to be the hardest part but it was really easy with 2 people. Could be we're getting better at doing things right the first time.
Easy to install, look great, I was so pleased I ordered another set for another room.
Perfect for hanging heavy doors. Just what was needed to finish the project.
Great product and great price! I will do business with Home Depot again! Thanks!
If you are doing a remodel, you might measure the height of your current track and runners as these were taller than the ones that were installed. I wound up having to trim about 3/4" off the door so that it would fit back in the opening. There is more of a gap under the trim at the top now, but I'll take that for better movement on the doors. Sturdy construction, installation wasn't too tough either. Installed in under an hour.
Very happy with these knobs they are beautifully made and look great. I replaced my boring wood knobs with these and my dressers and bedside tables look fantastic.
Product brings out the dark wood grain in the furniture.
They are perfect for my closet doors. Great quality, exactly as depicted on the websites picture and an overall clean finish to my room. Very happy.
These are beautiful! We refinished 40 year old cabinets in an old farm house and these look fabulous. My only complaint is that the screws do not work in all of the cabinets and drawers. What a pain to have to go back and get some that work!
