great unit poorly presented
Rockler needs to make sure you know to buy all the parts for this system. A basic reminder would be great. I read some reviews, so I knew to buy the hinges, which are separate. I didn't buy the follower rod. There's nothing more aggravating than making multiple trips to the store, except multiple trips to the online store with multiple shipping charges.

Woodworking Experience:
Great quality product
This slide system is the highest quality one that I have used so far. The only problems I had with this system was the 40mm (not the usual 35mm) forstner bit needed for the hinge cups and the full overlay hinge system needs a inside ledger to secure the track to, which would have changed my cabinet design. I was not able to change design, so I just used the hinges on the track the more traditional way. That made it so the hinges were partial overlay. Overall, great product.

I used these slides on the doors of a tall cabinet for a stacked washer and dryer. They were surprisingly easy to install (with two of us), and the doors slide in and out with no jerking, no binding, and virtually no effort on my part. The doors have a solid feeling as they're moved in and out that I haven't gotten with less expensive, flimsier slides. I'm very pleased with the slides and the overlay hinges. In fact, I like them so much I'm searching my house for another place to use them!

Design problem, can over tighten small screw for hinge to metal plate. Then keeps popping screws every time open door. On top hinge where support needed.what a pain.

Woodworking Experience:
I bought these for a cabinet...
I bought these for a cabinet that I made to hold the kids' flat screen and video equipment. I've never installed anything like this and I must say that, while initially it seemed quite intimidating, it was very straight forward. The hardware itself is excellent quality and as an engineer, I appreciate the clever design that provides for smooth door movement with no binding. After installing the hardware, I do have a few comments to make:1. Each hinge kit comes with two door slides and all of the hardware except the follower rod {you have to order it separately}. This rod has a flat side that interlocks with the pinion gears on both slides and makes them move together as one. This is a great design since, if you apply force to only one slide, the rod forces the other to follow and therein, you get zero binding between them. However, what baffles me is why the rod is not included with each slide kit. Obviously, the door height dictates the length of rod required {you do have to cut it} but I still don't understand why it isn't included. Further, while the product description does indicate that the rods are "sold separately," it does not explicitly note that it is required. If you don't know how the slides work together as a system, you won't necessarily know that you'll need to purchase the follower rod.2. The screws for attaching the hinges to the slide plates are included with the hinge packs. I was disappointed to find however that the pre-drilled holes in the slide plates are not tapped. You have to push the screws with some force while turning in order for them to "bite" into the plate. In my case, I picked up some threaded machine screws of similar size from the hardware store and ran a tap through the holes. I found that this, at least in my opinion, provides a more solid attachment.This was my first experience with this product and I can say without hesitation that the quality is impeccable. While they are a bit pricey, I am sold on them and will use them in the future for any similar applications.

I used these overlay pocket door hinges on an entertainment center for a client. I found them hard to install but will worth the labor, they work great no binding and solid. I installed them myself but could have used some help.

The package was missing the pinion...
The package was missing the pinion shaft, an important part for most installations. I managed to install it without the shaft, otherwise I would have been unable to finish, and invoice the job.Editor's note: Our customer service at 800-279-4441 is available anytime an item is discovered to be missing parts.
July 22, 2008
First of all you need (2) of these, as what you get in this "kit" is enough for one door, sans hinges.

Secondly, the very small phillips head screws you see in the photo only have about two or three threads, so using a door anywhere larger or heavier than maybe a small cabinet will cause this plate to warp enough to allow the screws to pop our of their threads, leaving you holding the door while screws rain into the cabinet and onto the floor.

i have a door that is 28 inches wide and 84 inches tall, and 3 quarter thickness. what size slide do i need?
garnik on Jun 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: •Max. door dimensions: 72" high x 26" wide.
I need a full overlay hinge for a 1" thick door?
Charles B on Jul 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: wow ... WHY NO answer from this company ???
The doors I need to install are 102" high x 22" wide x 3/4" thick. Would the slides still work? Or maybe it is possible to install 3 slides per door instead of two to compensate the extra height?
Daniel C on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would use three also. The weight is probably fine with 2 but the third can help with any door warping. You should check for a longer rod to go with this also.
Can the doors look hidden before they are opened? Meaning they are fairly tight to all 4 sides.
Mark S on Jun 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From the ones I have completed in the past, they should have the same gap on all sides. The door should look like any others that are on hinges mounted to the inside of the case. I hope this helps.
I have a 72" wide opening and am looking to have 2 sets of bi-fold doors that pocket back when opening. I was thinking of using this hardware and then a continuous piano hinge between the doors folding in. Do you think this will work?
robert j on May 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would make sure the hinges on the slide are heavy duty enough to hold the weight. That would be the main thing. The piano hinge will work , just make sure the pocket is large enough to take both doors
Does this allow you to slide item out and then swivel or does it just slide out?
slider on Apr 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Slides out and then close like a normal cabinet door. I used it for a hidden French door for a closet door setup. Worked great just make sure you get the shaft bar for longer spans.
I have a 36" x 36" wall cabinet and wanted to have overlay doors, but don't understand how the doors can slide back into the cabinet if the top of the door is overlay. Won't the door hit the top of the cabinet? What am I missing?
David H on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can use a flipper door slide with an overlay on the top but you have to notch the face frame to allow the door to slide back.
I have 92"h x 24" w x 1 1/2" thick inset maple doors on a 28" deep unit. which slides and hinges do I need to get the doors
to roll back in as deep as possible and how many slides are required
Rick J on Feb 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If your cabinet that you are going to slide the doors back into is 28 inches from the inside back to the inside of the face frame, then I would use the 28 inch pocket slide. If you don't have 28" on the inside, then you will have to use the 26". That will get your doors out of sight.

You must be aware that your door is over the max height of 72", and max thickness of 1 1/4 " that the manufacturer recommends. With a door that large I would not use less than 4. Check all the components that are required for the installation. You will need to purchase the hinge kits, plus a 72" follower rod. All are separate from the pocket slides. I have deviated from the manufacturers recommended dimensions on other installations, but you do so at your own risk. I hope this info helps you and good luck with your project.
I installed these in a client's house a few weeks ago. Two bi-fold doors that slide on either side of a television cabinet. My problem is that when the doors are folded and ready to slide into the cabinet, on of the sets of slides is really stiff and hard to get started. Could it be an issue with roller alignment or the vertical rod. Has anyone else experienced this? The other door works perfectly btw.
Adrienne R on Aug 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is worth checking (1) if any of the gears are rubbing on the edge of their opening in the metal plate; (2) if any gear is installed upside-down on the vertical rod (the gears have the word 'top' on the face that goes up); and (3) if any of the screws securing the pillow blocks are too tight. Item (1) is usually addressed during the initial assembly but can the whole rod sometimes moves as the pillow blocks are closed one-by-one. Item (2) is critical because the upper and lower tracks are offset by half a tooth and flipping one gear can misalign the upper and lower gear teeth with respect to each other. Item (3) is critical because tightening the screws completely (i.e. 'all the way') can make the upper half of the pillow block press too hard against the vertical shaft. One last possibility is that the screws securing the hinge bases are rubbing on the track, which can happen if they are too long and project slightly through the plate, but this would cause a buzzing noise as the screw tip grazes the teeth of the track.
I want to stack a washer & dryer in a closet with existing 72" tasll x 30" folding 1.25" thick door pannels. There are x2 panels in each 72"x30 folding door. To best fit the "stacked" height of the washer/dryer combo, the closet opening, presently @ 72" tall by 60" wide will have to be raised to @ 80" tall. Each door (15"x72") x2 = 30" wide x 1.25" thinck pine folding door panel pair weigh @ 38# To work with the new closet height of @ 80" @ 8x1.25 inchs will have to be added to the top or bottom of the existing doors. My questions are two fold. But for the specification sheet/technical detail "max 72" height x 26" W" requirement, the doors are/will be well within the 75lbs weight limits. Could one still use the system on the larger door with x2 hinges/sliders? Could the added height issue be handled by installing two separate, I.e. 4 hinges/slides per door? 2nd given that I have a 15" wide panel, does one use the 18" slide (I am guessing this allows for the 3 - 4" travel distance over lap the Technical Details call for.) I don't need the full 30" of dual door panel to slide all the way into the closet space.
Micharl P on Dec 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Its been a couple of years and a few projects later since I made a custom cabinet with sliding doors for the stack washer and dryer unit for a client. The unit had doors taller (approx. 80" to 86") then the specs for the sliding hinge assembly however I was able to center the assemble, splitting the difference at the top and bottom of the doors and it worked out fine. As far as the strength and holding capabilities of the hinges they had no problem holding my 3/4" finished Oak Plywood (with rails and stiles approx. 1.25" thick) cabinet doors up however each door I'm questing was no more then 30 lbs.. I am not sure, can't recall the exact dimensional requirements for slide length and can only suggest you further research with manufacturer. Clearances are many and painful, check height, width, Slide space between closet and Stack appliances for door and hinge assembly, bottom clearances for I believe the catch/roller/guide assemblies for door, depth of closet allowing for drip pan (if required), electrical, water and drain lines and possible water alarm sensor/shutoff if applicable. Hope this helps more then confuses or frustrates you.
Can I use 2 sets of the 48" high KV pocket slides on one door? Door is 99"h A top and a bottom set?
cigarkevin on Jul 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, see if you can get a longer shaft. This will make the job easier.
Would this work in a corner cabinet? The cabinet doors would have to close 135 degrees instead of the normal 90 degrees.
Jamie on Nov 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: as far as I know the hinge would only open and closed at 90 angle and then slide back into the cabinet opening. the track system we used it on was for a double lovered door system for a stackable washer & dryer. I don't think it could open any further for a corner cabinet hope this helps
I have a 72" wide opening. I want to install two doors with 26" retracting, leaving 10" on each door to extend out from the wall. Will the largest slide work?
Gary B on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Gary B. I was asked by Rockler to help answer your question. These slides work well and are fairly easy to install. I'm not sure about the length of the largest slide. If your cabinet design allows for the doors being proud of the carcass 10", then you will be happy with the product. Where I used these was with bifold doors on an 83"opening. If you don't want nearly 1/3 of your doors protruding, I suggest the bifold design. Hope this helps you.
I this the only pocket slide option for a full overlay door? The door is a typical kitchen door at 1" thick x 16"W x 12"H. This seems overkill but let me know if it would work.
Nikki B on May 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: this is a good solid mechanism for the application I used this on doors that are 72 inches tall on a murphy bed the door is made of 3/4 inch MDF the rack and pinion operation keeps the door from getting out of alignment well worth the cost I do not consider this overkill when you get this you will see it is the proper thing for what you are doing
Can this hinge be used for an overhead door install?
Thad H on Dec 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you mean opening horizontally up as apposed to vertically left or right I don't think it's really made for that. It's possible though that maybe if you had the door supported rolling back on a roller type track on the left and right side maybe?? The door itself will flop down and drag otherwise. The only thing you might need to be careful of is the door slamming back down. You'd need to manually guide it up and down. Hopefully that makes sense.
I am looking to construct a laundry center for side by side washer/dryer. Probably need to create a finished opening of 56" width and 72" height.for .75-1.25" thick doors. Can these pivot/slide hinges accommodate this?
JeffG on Jul 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will work I used a light door. My door opening was 60 inches and I believe the hinges only retract 26 or 27 inches so when they are open a small portion of door shows.
Does this allow the hinges to recess prior to the door being fully (90 deg.) open? I have a situation where I don't quite have clearance to fully open a regular door, but if the swing point could tuck back a little, the door could fully open once the hinge is recessed 1"-2".
Seth P on Mar 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If I understand your question, it will depend upon how far forward whatever it is you are enclosing is to the front and sides of the cabinet. If you have it tightly packed, you may have a problem. If you have a 3/4 door overlay it will require the door to be open more before it will clear the face frame. I am assuming you are mounting the hinges to the outside wall. I cannot comment if you are mounting them to an interior cabinet partition.
I want to use these for normal hollow core doors to my laundry closet. The opening is approximately 5' 10" so each door will be about 35" but we can see about making them only 30". Will these work on normal hollow core doors?
Tony J on Mar 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I forgot to mention in my previous answer, You will need the slide length to be as long as possible (30" I think is the longest). Even with this amount of travel back into the cabinet, the doors will still not retract back into the cabinet fully because they are wider than 30".
What's the minimum door height required? Can I use this system with a 20" high door?
Joe K on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used mine on a door that was around 20 inches high. I compensated for the distance from the door edge at the bottom and at the top, I shortened the distance recommended. That gave me separation between the two mounts. I think it would work very well, as long as the door is not much wider than it is tall. I think the manufacturer thinks it would place too much strain on the rack and pinion system. Even if it is longer, I think you would be ok, the system is well made and can hold a fair amount of weight.
We are installing a stacked washer/dryer. The clear width opening is 31" and cavity depth is 36". What size slide do we need if using 1 door? if using 2 doors?
Susan G on Nov 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The largest we have is a 30". I would recommend that you use two doors. Then you use a longer slide and be able to slide the doors farther into the side and out of the way. 18" #23270 or 20"25046
Will this work with a 1-3/4" thick door?
Kevin R on Apr 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you get the thick door hinges, the most it will do is 1 1/4" thick. Any thicker and it will rub or hit the sliding track.
Can the pocket door slide be attached directly to wall instead of adding a cabinet for it to attach to? I want to hide my pedestal washer and dryer that has a wall on the left and will have a deep base cabinet on the right. It seems I could attach these directly to the wall on the one side and to the outside fo the base cabinet on the other. I could still attach a shelf or counter above the washer and dryer by using sturdy shelf brackets. Would I save money and a few inches of space?
george on Apr 11, 2019

Jkoski on Dec 24, 2018
When I go to slide the doors back into the cabinet it is hard to push them. Can this be fixed? What is causing this?
Mike G on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Have had the problem due to warped doors, but not due to hardware itself.
I have a rough opening that is 60" wide and 36" deep on each side. I will have a desk and computer in this area I would like to be concealed when we are in the basement. in the specs the doors are listed as max 26"wide, but my 2 doors will be ~30" each, does that just mean when they are inset they will extend out ~4" on each side? I can live with that. I don't want there to be a 4inch gap when the doors are closed meeting in the middle. ill be building the doors from 3/4stock
Phillip O on Nov 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Phil, you have an ideal width to depth ratio. Careful planning and those doors will slide completely out of view of the (I am assuming) closet opening.
Using two pair of these, opposite each other in a 90 degree corner, the doors need to swing 135 degrees to cover a wide screen TV. Is there a simple hinge that will do that? Could I make the given door a stub and hinge another door on it without it all getting floppy?
John P on Sep 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It would seem to me that the slide would have to slide out past the cabinet carcass edge so that the attached hinge could move out to the required angle. If you have the hinges on hand experiment on clearances
I have an existing door that I want to make into a pocket door so it matches other doors in my home. The door is 1 3/4" but when you add the decorative trim the doors width is now 2 3/4". Is there a pocket door frame that will accommodate this width?
Joe P on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A standard 2 x 4 wall will not allow a standard pocket door frame for that door thickness. If you get creative you could have a sheet metal shop make up some shallow 16 guage or heavier u-channels (studs). The channel sides will be approx. 1/4" high. In this case you would have to have a little knowledge of drywall hanging experience with sheet metal screws. These shallow studs when mounted to the floor and ceiling plates will create quite a rigid wall. With some thought you could make your own pocket door frame easily. Would not recommend the thin wall studs sold at the building supply stores, they are really flimsy and the channel sides are too deep.
Good Luck and great idea
I will have an opening width of app 56 inches so each door will have to cover 28 inches but I will have a depth of only 24 inches which will leave me with appr 7-8 inches sticking out into the room when the pocket doors are recessed. Is it feasible to make the doors bifold doors just using a piano hinge and using 4 doors rather then 2? The door height will be app 36 inches and will be oak stile and rail with flat 1/4 panel so will be fairly light and will be flush mount
Keith K on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I see no reason that your idea would not work. It is very innovative, and shows a great deal of out of the box thinking. You would have to ensure that your inside clearance, from one side of the bi fold to the other side would fit all your items that would go inside. It would be a shame to build it, then find you are short an 1/8 inch.
I must say that I find your solution very interesting and a great solution to your problem. I hope this helps, and good luck with your project.
Can I mount overhead versus vertical?
Dennis P on Oct 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: According to the manufacturer they can be mounted in a horizontal position. This, however, puts stress on the rollers and will cause them to wear out faster. In the vertical position this stress is on the hinges which can take it better.
What are the hinge dimensions?
