Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Very Sturdy Door Frams
This pocket door frame is much sturdier then the one they carry in the store and is worth the extra money. There are some drawbacks.
1. It is somewhat complicated to install, so the novice might have some problems with installation.
2. Normally you can just install door trim around the door, however the top adjusters are long so you will need to add an additional piece of trim to cover the opening. Again, not for the novice.
We have a glass paneled door to the bathroom and it looks and works great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Blackacre Good hardware, poor condition upon arrival
Overall this is a good product. Once installed, my door glides smoothly on the track and should last for a very long time. However, when the package showed up on my doorstep, it had been abused. Three of the four brackets were bent and I had to reshape them back to square. The directions were a little difficult to follow but the install was not that difficult. I am not a professional and this was my first pocket door install and it works perfectly. I gave it less than perfect score because of the poor packaging and damage and the poor install directions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BathRemodeler Great Online Video Instruction!
Great online video instruction! Process was very easy to follow. However, I watched the video for the 1500 series and planned my rough opening based on the video. But I purchased the heavy-duty 2000 series kit and some of the rough opening specs were different so I had to make adjustments after I received the product. Additionally, the two "slip finger" parts were missing from my box and HD had to have Johnson Hardware ship out replacement parts to me. Parts arrived quickly! Overall though, I am very pleased with this product and I absolutely would recommend it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mlcnst Way to expensive for what you get
This came without essential parts in the package and took a week and a half to get replacements from the supplier. Next time I will buy another and return it after I take the parts I need and get it faster. This unit is a lot better than the off the shelf cheapie available all over but not buy too much and you have to supply your own jambs with this. The wheels and track are good and the attachment system is good but it takes a lot of planning to get a really good looking finish product to hide the wheels and space above the door after installed. Also the nylon guides for the bottom of the door are a joke because they are tapered and individual and thick making them hard to install correctly rather than the horseshoe type that comes with the cheap frames. Those are always easy to install and I've never had a problem with them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jwr61 A much better than average frame & hardware
I found this unit because most pocket door frames and hardware are lacking in quality as well as performance. This set up makes the use of a pocket door better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by npvisual Solid construction
I bought 2 of those for a remodel job and they came in very handy to save some space. The product comes with some decent instructions and is fairly easy to install as long as the rough opening is level and square. The header box is of solid construction and cuts easily to a custom size. The rollers seem very sturdy and able to withstand a lot of opening / closing -- but I haven't tried them yet with a solid core door.
