Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dennisst Good product at a reasonable price
I purchased and installed this item about a year ago and it has worked great. The door slides very smoothly and the installation was very straight forward.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by irasng Excellent Product!
I installed this kit with ease. I do have some construction experience so I'm sure that helped a bit. Easy install and the kit is very good quality. My door slides perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spiral Very detailed and helpful instuctions
Assembly and installation was a breeze thanks to the detailed instructions that came with the product. Johnson Hardware's website also has an excellent video to help you.
The rollers and track are top quality on this door. Structurally it seems quite adequate although nailing the trim must be done carefully so as to not nail into the metal split studs. I used 6" x 1" trim screws instead of nails in the casing instead of nailing.
All-in-all, a very good purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dmdj not as complicated as it looks
We installed two Johnson Pocket Door systems both with the converging doors option. The first went a little slow with referring back to the video a few times, but the second one went in within a couple of hours with no hesitation. I suggest one watch the video a couple of times and take notes before ever beginning the install. Two people working together at times on this is almost a must. They work and look beautiful.

I do not like pocket doors as they fall off track and jam. I looked at this on line and liked what I saw so order it. I have installed it and am extremely happy with the quality and believe that I won't have an issue with the door falling off the track. I like the two way ball bearing rollers and the extruded track.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DYIGuy Johnson 1500 SERIES POCKET DOOR FRAME
Good solid frame that is easy to install. Would be nice to have an additional package with: jamb trim, pemko brushes, rare magnets or some kind of mechanical device to hold door closed/opened, good quality hardware, and better good guides. I had to buy all that all over the internet which is a hassle.
Overall, good quality product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shark Well built product. Would definitely purchase again.
Great time-saver for a DIYer. I know this sounds silly but... double check yourself when hanging the top track. Make sure opening will be on the side you expect. Installation instructions could be better. Tip: I used lath screws (not drywall screws) to secure components instead of nails. Drill pilot holes in framing because alignment needs to be pretty precise. Worked well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed NOT as expected
I was excited when I purchased the 1500 door kit, but not so much when I opened the box. One of the end brackets was bent and needed to be straightened, the header had numerous knot holes up to 3/4" in diameter, some orangutan had stripped out both end bracket mounting plate screws, and the provided screws were accompanied by directions that cleverly concealed their intended use.
This could have been a very good product and I probably could have sent it back, but I didn't have the time. This is NOT what I expected and NOT worth the money I paid for it. Johnson hardware could do much better!
