Customer Questions & Answers

Where are the installation instructions?

Where is the online PDF installation instructions document? Also, a couple content suggestions: (1) a picture of a finished pocket door installation would be VERY helpful; (2) even many contractors have never attempted a pocket door installation, so including instructions is a no-brainer! Lol ;-)
Asked by: treeguy
MaryT either has a different product than the one I just purchased or she's being a smart aleck. There are no instructions on the box, in the hardware bag, or online. Very disappointing.

Can this be installed in a 2x4 studded wall?

2x4 walls or are 2x6 needed?
Asked by: ThatBobGuy
Yes. That's exactly what I did. Remember to get some short finishing nails (or brad if you're using an air gun) because the horizontal planks you need to attach the drywall or paneling to (I used 1/4" thick Luan hardwood plywood from the Blue store--worked like a dream.) are only 3/4" thick. Use any fastener too long and you will screw into or scratch the door! :-O

Will this pocket door frame kit work with this door slab?

Will this door frame kit work with item "Masonite 36 in. x 80 in. Smooth Flush Hardboard Solid Core Primed Composite Interior Door Slab" (See attached screenshot. Model # 08606 Internet #100043787 Store SKU #251326, http://www.homedepot.com/p/Masonite-36-in-x-80-in-Smooth-Flush-Hardboard-Solid-Core-Primed-Composite-Interior-Door-Slab-08606/100043787)? See, I want to go to my "local" Home Depot and pick up everything I need for a pocket door installation--AND only have to make one 70-mile trip! ;-) Lol I plan to install a 36x80 pocket door for a bathroom. Oh also, what product would you recommend for an "all-in-one" privacy latch and pull that can be unlocked from outside the bathroom in case of an emergency (...preferably with a key, if such an animal exists?? If not, just sticking in a nail, screwdriver, etc., would be suitable. Satin nickel or chrome finish.) Thanks.
Asked by: treeguy
Actually, now I don't care. Installed the Builder's Choice 28x80 pocket door frame instead and since I would have had to order the door and wait like two weeks if I got it from Home Depot, I simply went to one of the two Surplus Warehouses in Jackson, MS, and picked one up for less than $20 bucks! And they keep several of every size of door in stock at all times. ;-)

Can this be adjusted (cut) down to 34" width?

Asked by: Ken
Yes, but it's not any fun. I had to shorten mine because I only had about 82 inches of headroom on the right end due to installation in a "squatty short" 10'x20' storage building with the inside finished off with 4x8 sheets of 3/4" particle board. I merely sawed a triangle off the top edge and "hand chiselled" a dovetailed slot in the header board that that edge fit into so the right edge of the aluminum "roller channel rail" actually rested against and screwed into the particle board. That way I was able to avoid completely cutting through the header board and leave the door frame intact and did not have to undo any of the staples it was assembled with. If I were you, I would do a similar thing and merely rip a couple 2x4s down to 2 inches and screw them to the back upright board in the frame where the door bumpers are installed. That way the 34" wide door will stop exactly when the edge is even with the slot and not roll in too far. ;-)

36 in. Pocket Door Frame is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.

Clearly, whoever makes these in some third world sweat shop is being paid by each unit created. The entire thing is blown together with staples, only a few screws hold the track to the frame. Because time was short had to use this thing with shims and a lot of additional screws. Take a look at the picture and see just how bent they put this together, nothing is straight. There was such a bend on the frame we had to reinforce it with a 2x4 which fit inside the gap quite easily. There are better products out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to install We used two of these to turn antique french doors into pocket doors for our den remodel. This was the first time either of us had attempted pocket doors, and these frames made the project a whole lot easier. They came with all the hardware, and instruction as to the dimensions your openings should be. Given our application we required a little more math, but overall these were a great product for our purposes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read the reviews before installation. 1. Check your packet of materials before leaving store. 2. Read the reviews before install. 3. This has been called flimsy, but there is a cheap fix for that. I used a flat metal piece that I screwed into the bottom (before install) so it would connect both sides and set flat on the floor after installation. I then drilled a hole in the center and into the floor below to anchor the bottom edge of the pocket to the floor. Just make sure everything is square and you have a solid install!
