This soft-close hardware is intended for use with our I-Semble Rolling Barn Door Hardware Kits (#59088, #53700, #56667, and #52109, sold separately). It combines a self-close mechanism with a soft-close damper that pulls the door closed slowly and quietly. Installation is straightforward with the included mounting screws and instructions. Kit includes two mechanisms. One soft close kit per door.

Note: Not for use with I-Semble Rolling Door Hardware Kit, Bent Strap, Stainless Steel (#52109, sold separately).

  • Only compatible with flat tracks, such as those on the I-Semble Rolling Barn Door Hardware Kits. Round tracks do not have the appropriate mounting surface.

Barn door soft stops
These were exactly what I needed for my barn door. They work great! Wouldn't have a barn door without them now that I have them.

Good gear, poor instructions
This kit works as advertised. Read one of the reviews that said you had to drill and tap the holes for mounting and then it was an easy job. That info should have been in the kit. I would recommend this to friends but make sure they are informed about the mounting process.

Google and YouTube are your friends
Yes, the Ikea style instructions suck. No, you do not need to tap the holes you drill in the flat track. That’s what the rectangular nuts included in the kit are for. If you’re having a hard time with installing these, which work great BTW, google “how to install soft close barn door hardware” and watch one of several videos on the subject.

Woodworking Experience:
These soft-closers work very nicely w/ really smooth action. Door does require some effort to 'un-lock' but the anti-jump discs that come with the rail hardware will prevent derailment. My only complaint is the lack of instructions - only a couple of diagrams which provided NO measurements. For the machine screws provided in the kit to mount the closers, you will need to drill 1/8" holes through your rail, then thread them with a 4mm metric tap. One closer goes between the first two rail bolts on the left side, and the other between the last two mounting bolts on the right. The height position on the back of the rail depends on the type of roller bracket style you get, and it depends on the distance between the bottom of the rail and the top of the door. Beware - may require some reverse engineering, but they work great to prevent door slamming and pinched fingers.

Worked great for 1 week. But, what do you expect for 14.99?

I thought these would be so nice be absolutely terrible instructions, rather NO INSTRUCTIONS at all.. and the guys at Rockler Wood Working no help either,,did not know a thing. I saw others out there that used lower track clips to install with set screws. These apparently require drilling through thick track metal and tapping holes? I am taking mine back. I do NOT recommend this brand name soft closer.

Great idea but.....
They receive the door well but the tention to pull the door is so strong it can derail the rollers. Sadly there is no way to change the tention.

Barn doors are to be installed in a house with boys. Soft close seemed the only choice.
Richard L on Dec 6, 2017
I thought it would be better than allowing the door to bounce off the stops

Does this fit any flat track system?
Bert A on Apr 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is pre drilled for the bar they sell with it. If you have the ability to drill the holes in the correct place it can be used on any bar. The holes on the i-semble bar were pretapped, but I think it could be made to work with just through holes. While this works really well, (I've had mine installed about a year now), I would question the effort to make it work. ??? It's your call and more importantly your skill set to make it fit.
Can two of these provide soft close at open position and closed position of one large door?
Jerry P on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, a pair of these provides the soft close function at both ends of the door's travel. I mounted them on a 36 inch door and they work great. My only concern would be what you mean by a large door, more precisely, how heavy is the door? I don't know what the limitations of the mechanism are. Rockler should be able to provide that information.
Does this version work with the soft-close dampers?

BEST ANSWER: The main rail was predrilled for the soft-close dampers, and the fit was fine. The clearance was a bit tight for the installation, but eventually worked out ok. They function very nicely, the adjustment was a little tricky.
Is this exterior rated?
Ant R on Mar 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would so no. It is not a sealed mechanism. While it doesn't say one way or the other, just from observing I would say no.
Does this show from the outside, or install behind the rail?
Dawne H on Oct 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Behind the rail.
