Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Davep Solid core slab
The instructions are vague. The screws are cheap and not long enough. The wood is not true. The rail and rollers/casters are outstanding. It came not fully assembled. So I'm assuming poor quality control. This is my third one but first solid slab door. the middle sagged. Preventing the door keeping open or closed. The door is 50lbs the frame is spec for 200lbs. The instructions Did notcover this. I replaced the channel screws and secured the center of the frame and it works fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ed Great product and easy install
The installation for a normal wall is very easy to do and the instructions are really good.
As the wall it was being used on was going to be tiled as a shower on the inside, I did have to add additional support on the inside wall of the pocket door system. I used 1x4/6 stock to attach to the side of the stock braces and then overlap the wider 1x6 pieces to 1x4/steel stuf combination for the equivalent of a 2x6 at each post. I attached the 1x4 with pocket screws to the Johnson stud and then a 1x6 that overlapped those on the inside. This only cost 3/4 inch of space in the shower area and made the inner wall almost as solid as the standard 2x4 wall beyond the pocket door area.
Overall VERY happy with their product, just make sure everything is exactly level and plum or your door will have issues.

On Johnson's web site, they make the claim that the "Frame Header: Select solid spruce". When the item arrived, it was made up of CHEAP WHITE PINE with a few staples and the header frame was coming apart. NEVER will I buy this garbage again, and will steer everyone else away from making the same mistake i did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldmanhandyman Installed 2 1500 series Johnson Hardware 32 inch pocket door tracks
Project not finished but have installed 2 1500 door tracks- went up easily, appear well constructed but I have not hung doors yet. The cardboard boxy of one of the sets had been broken open in the store and when I started installation I realized 2 floor brackets were missing. I e-mailed Johnson, got a prompt response and 2 new brackets two days later in the mail. I will try to check back in with update when project completed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DanB Very Satisfied - Great Product!
On a recent project, we converted our 4th bedroom into an extension of the Master bedroom walk-in closet. We used the Johnson Hardware Pocket Door Frame kit and it worked out great.
I installed a 28" pocket door, so I had to trim the header of the kit. I found the directions clear, and the kit already had the marks located showing where the cut needs to be depending on door size.
The hardware includes everything, even a small wrench for tweaking the angle of the door hang, to attain perfect alignment (though you really want your new header to be square).
The included roller bearings are very nice too.
I've included pictures showing day 1 project start, thru completion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MJF A fine product
Delivery was prompt, item was much sturdier and of greater quality than what I saw in the stores. Installation was also easy in a new wall (as opposed to existing wall).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Engineer Easiest way to install a pocket door!
After reading reviews of several pocket door kits I selected the Johnson 1500 Pocket door frame kit. Ordered from Home Depot and got quick FREE delivery to my home. One picture in the instructions could lead you to reverse the header channel during installation but otherwise the directions were very precise. Pocket door replaced inswinging regular door going into washroom. Existing 32" door really took up floor space in the small washroom and was a pain blocking area behind open door. Now it is like a much larger room. Heavy duty ball bearing rollers are slick!
Main reason to like this kit beside ease of installation, my wife LOVES it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GhaVO Looks great and easy to install
Everything installed just great. I now want to replace all my doors into pocket doors. I did have an issue with the packaging and pieces. The box was a bit roughed up and may have lost the brackets. I called Johnson's Hardware and they sent the replacement one within a couple days. Then I noticed when following the instructions that the header was not properly marked for specific door sizes. I ended up doing the measurements but feel that there was a lapse in Quality Control. The kits installed just fine and looks great. Remember to measure twice and cut once!
