Excellent product at a very reasonable price, it is very important to have the bolts go into studs or place a board behind the entire bar for additional support. do not over tighten the bolts because they will push the door spacer into the drywall. the top bar must be perfectly level or else the door will slide to one side or the other. as you tighten one bolt check for level and keep checking it for level after each bolt. it is a good idea to have another person helping you when installing this product. the description says that it is bronze color however it is more like black in color. The instructions are very easy to understand and they MUST be read before installing the sliding door hardware. great product I would recommend this to anyone looking to add a rustic country look to their home. ( I take time to do product reviews after every major purchase , help keep me doing them by rating my review) hope this review was helpful.

High quality hardware for a terrific price when compared to anything else I could find. Added a door I purchased from Home Depot on-line (Internet # 205518364), as well as some additional decorative hardware sold on homedepot.com......decorative strap hinges and decorative nail heads (Internet #'s 203233034 and 203233042). Love the look of this decorative/sliding barn door hardware!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Polly In the end, great product!
In the end, our sliding door turned out great and we couldn't be happier with the product, however, we did run into some bumps along the way and I think some suggestions could save future purchasers some time.
Because we were placing this on a wall of our brand new pantry that was built specifically for this type of hardware, I can definitely say that we had it on the header, but of course there was sheet rock on top of it. The first time we put it up we used power tools...don't use power tools...it sunk the spacers directly into the sheet rock and caused it to be too close to the wall making the rolling hardware drag.
The second time we moved it down so we would have brand new holes and installed it with a hand tool, it still sunk and this time it sagged a little.
We almost gave up, but third times a charm and decided to put a board behind the spacers like other pictures we had came across so it wasn't going directly on the sheet rock. We also purchased some longer bolts/screws. Finally, success!
I'm really not sure how other's put this hardware directly on to sheet rock, but it definitely wasn't working that way for us.
I would suggest checking to make sure it is level over and over again while installing...the first time ours magically closed all by itself!
And another note...before you install, put the stops on if they need to go on the inside of a bolt. You HAVE to put it on before otherwise you'll have to take it down and start all over! (yes we found this out the hard way!)
I know this review sounds like this would be a disaster product, but I would take into account that we are beginners at this stuff and probably didn't think things all the way through. After lots of research it was the best deal I could find for this type of product and is definitely made out of sturdy material.

I ran into a few snags installing this kit, but not to the fault of the product. It is designed to sit flush against the wall and be drilled into studs. Well, I have plaster walls with frames around them. So I had to install a backer/plank to make the door sit off the wall enough to pass the frame, buy new bolts that accommodate the extra length, and get anchors that fit the new bolts that will sufficiently hold in plaster. YIkes. But, in all, the track works great, comes with straight-forward instructions, and looks even better. I couldn't even try and describe how much I love this door and I get compliments on it constantly. Works much better than the vinyl accordion separator that was the "door" to the den when I bought the house!

This hardware looks great and works very well. Was very easy to put together and with our own custom door it looks great. Slides very smooth.
