Note: Our pocket door hardware has a blue marking on one hinge mounting plate. This mark should always be mounted at the top of the case. This allows us to distinguish between a left or a right door system.
1. SLIDE POSITIONING
Face Frame applications: The front of the slides will be pulled up against the back of the face frame.
Panel End Applications: The front of slides will be fastened to the position of the back of the door in its closed position.
For both applications: The pocket door should be centered in the case opening in exact relationship as the center to center of the hinges. (the measurement from the top of the door to the center of the top hinge should be the same as the measurement from the top of the case opening to the center of the top slide)
Step #1: Fasten top slide parallel to the top of case completely using only the round screw holes on slide (for best result use a #6 pan or truss head screw).
Step #2: Using top slide as a guide, pull the follow strip all the way to the front of case and back off just enough to insert screw in the bottom half of the first hole, straight in. Push the follow strip all the way to the back of case, and install screw in the center the second round hole, about 1/3 of the way back from the front of the slide. Pull follow strip forward just enough to install screw in the center of the back hole.
FOR 3-SLIDE SYSTEMS:
Step #1: Install top and bottom slide as you would with a 2 slide system.
Step #2: Use the follow strip as a guide. Pull the follow strip all the way forward in the case and push back just enough to put screw in center of first round hole. Then slide bar all the way to the back of the case and install screw in the center of the second round hole, about 1/3 of the way back from the front of the slide. Pull follow strip forward just enough to install screw in the center of the back hole.
