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 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 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).

I can't understand why they don't cary this product in the store but decide to carry only a cheap off-brand version. Rollers handle the door like they were on ice. Very quiet operation. I have 13 pocket doors in my house (This makes 14). I added this to my home when closing in a room to make it a bedroom and I can tell you that all the others are harder to open and close and noisy when you roll the door. I shimmed out all the studs to customize the wall depth I needed in my project. Don't cut cost here when budgeting your project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 69canam Quick and easy way to install a pocket door.
Sturdy hardware and framing. Only complaint would be that the instructions can be difficult to sort out, due to the fact that there are multiple languages all on the same sheet.

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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by katzedame Works great!
This will be the second pocket door I will put in. Just finished my first with the same unit. Was easy to install. I made the header the exact height I needed it...so I could screw the rail up into the header....but...it works fine the way they say to measure the header. I usually am overkill. :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greg168 This pocket door is of the highest quality
When I began my project of expanding a bath/laundry room the swinging door was the first obstacle I had to cross. I found the Johnson pocket door and ordered it with ball bearing rollers. This product installed in about 3 hours inlcluding the rough framing. It was easy, and when finished the quality of the rollers impressed me and my wife. We are very happy with the overall quality.
