Is it ok to buy Johnson pocket door hardware from Home Depot?
I have heard that Home Depot has manufacturers of certain products alter the products to lesser quality standards so Home Depot can sell it for a lower price point. Home Depot is the easiest and fastest place for me to get the door hardware, but I don't want a lesser quality product since I am buying Johnson for its great reputation.
Per recommendations received here, I want to buy the 1500 series pocket door frame with the upgrade to 1125 ball bearing hangers. The HD website shows the exact same model number, 152668HD, as the Johnson website, so it is probably ok. The HD description says it includes ball bearing hangers, although the picture shows the standard 1120 hangers.
