Complete the job by attaching any hardware accessories to the door, such as fold-down handles or decorative pulls. Editor’s Note: Special thanks to professional remodeler Ritchie Hamilton for help with this project. EHT
Slot the wheel hangers into the metal header track.
Metal lock tabs are mounted to the top of the door will connect to the hangers. Screw the lock tabs to the door 2” from each edge.
Rehang the door and test its operation. Once satisfied, add the door guides at the bottom. This essentially completes the functional aspect of the project. Everything else is cosmetic: wallboard, trimwork, paint and details. The installer will need to repair the hinge mortises, install a recessed handle and add an edge-pull to the old door to give it new life as a door that “disappears.”
Solid nylon wheel hangers allow a pocket door to open and close.
