I have the Johnson pocket door kit....it comes with two plastic 'slides' that you install on the inside at the bottom to keep the door centered in the opening....just like md2lgyk noted....


Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.

yep, usually two plastic pieces that install to the slotted door jamb either side of the door at the bottom and the plastic pieces slide up or down on the jamb to get the right fit. once installed the door should only rub those two pieces of plastic to stay centered and not the wood jamb

its constantly amazing how the apron/vest stores have become the ' norm ' of quality standards as they sell on PRICE, not quality,,, IF the buyer has no idea of quality, they're at the mercy of those who sell on price
