Pocket door hardware
 
Anyone know a good local store (box or not) that carries pocket door hardware? I need the track and trollies. Depot has a whole frame but i just need the track. I grabbed a cheapy track from the closet section but it's just that; cheap!

Thanks. Im just trying to avoid shipping surcharges and delay if i can.

I only use Johnson hardware, you're all too correct about the "other brands" (Made in "you know where") but you might get lucky at your local Habitat for Humanity ReStore? If not, johnsonhardware.com ships cheap and fast and it's always in stock...

I love Johnson hardware. Hands down the best. shipping was a bit much but it's over 4' long so I think ups charges a surcharge for over length items. :( I was hoping to find just the rail at a depot or lowes. Glad to hear another Johnson hardware lover LOL

When I was doing our doors here, the wife brought home a cheapie kit and I was flabbergasted at how shoddy the quality was!! I had her take it back the next day, of course, but only after I showed her side by side comparisons of WHY we did not want the Made in you-know-where garbage!!!

Johnson is only thing I've ever used. Them Lithuanians don't know a thing about hardware, I don't know why they keep making it and shipping it over here

Lithuanians? LOL

I was quite surprised today when I went into home depot and they had a 60" Johnson pocket door track/hardware. $26.00....$13 more than the cheapo closet door type track I originally bought because I didn't venture past the closet aisle. Shame on me. Oh well got my big Johnson I'm happy :) it's going in tonight...at 9pm
