It was not readily available at my East coast store either. The kit will arch one door way. It comes with two pieces that will arch your door way. Ship to store is what I did. Came a little sooner than expected I believe.

could you use this for a pocket door?

Answers

Depends. If you remove said door maybe. Then frame in. But in our case the pocket door had one wall side of knotty pine so Sheetrock and mud was not an option. Works best when both sides are able to be Sheetrocked and mud up to it. You will need the bendable edging for corners.

We have used to round corners at top of wall (dropped 16" partition down from ceiling to create open arch) of a 6 foot span. Looks just fine. We aren't ready to drywall yet but can see it will finish very nicely.

I have plaster walls and an existing arch that is not symmetrical. Can I use this kit to make the arch symmetrical?

Ya It worked well. I didn't know until I looked it up but you need to use two 1/4" pieces of sheet rock for the bend. I wet it and scored the paper on the back side to get it to form well. It was my first time making an arch and this made it much easier.
