Hi all, we have a pocket door to our closet. our builder installed some random home depot pocket door hardware and the door always gets stuck or is hard to open and close. It just does not glide very smoothly. So we want to replace the hardware with something more heavy duty/higher quality. Can you recommend a good brand for smoother operation of the pocket door?

Johnson hardware.

100PD for most residential doors, even solid wood (it is rated up to 200 pounds).

The 200PD is rated even higher, but is unlikely to be needed for residential use.

Here is a link that might be useful: Johnson Hardware

I have 15 pocket doors in my house and used Johnson Hardware on all.
Different weights, different widths, it's great.

On my heavier doors, altho it might be overkill, I bought extra rollers and put 3 on the top of the door.
