Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NH Visit the Door and Window desk before puchasing.
After scratching my head about how to assemble this for a day, guessing and second guessing myself about how to put it together and install it, I took my wife's advice and stopped at the "Doors and Windows" desk when I was back at the store. It turns out that they have a full sheet of assembly and installation instructions that they are supposed to give everyone who purchases a pocket door. No one would ever know that, particularly since the box promises "instructions included" not "instructions at the desk".
I'd be lying if I said that the instructions were super clear, but having them allowed me to quickly go from looking at a hole in my wall to having pocket doors assembled and installed.
DO NOT USE THE PRODUCT PHOTO ON THE HOME DEPOT WEBSITE AS A GUIDE FOR ASSEMBLY. It is not correct. I guess the product photographers couldn't figure out where the instructions were either.

Frame was not assembled square, but was easy to fix. Hardware worded good and finished product is very satisfactory.

It's unfortunate that you can't find ANYTHING online with regard to manuals, how this should go together, etc. Yes, I can figure it out. Should I have to? No! There were things that just don't make sense about this and the assembly that at first get you scratching your head. I'd rather have a product take longer to put together than a product take longer to figure out. Plus, this is a flimsy frame that really shouldn't cost as much as it does for some stapled boards. I would bet there isn't a builder out there chooses this over other options.

There were no instructions included for the size of the rough opening and how to attach the pocket door frame into the opening. I had to partially assemble the frame and do the rough framing around it and guess how to attach it to the floor and header beam. The instructions for installing the trolley hardware and how to attach to the door were printed on the plastic bag that contained the parts, so be careful opening the package.
The pocket door frame is cheaply built. Spend a little more and get a more durable product that comes with instructions.

The wall of the frame is very flimsy, even with drywall attached.

INSTRUCTIONS WERE A LITTLE TOUGH TO FOLLOW FOR SOMEONE THAT HAS NEVER INSTALLED A POCKET DOOR.
