barn door hardware help


can someone help me track down the hardware this door is using?



i've recently purchased and they are just simply too heavy duty for a small bathroom door. aside from being too heavy duty, i find that the rail hanger allows the door to swing back and forth thus scratching up the wall. i'm looking for something that is more still and solid such that the door does not rest against the bottom of the drywall.

Why not just replace that with a real reguler door instead of that nasty ugly thing?
Your missing the bottom door guide to stop it from swinging.

Looks possibly like pocket door hardware. You need a U shaped guide on the floor to keep the door from swinging.

Check here.

it's a small hall way with 2 door opening already. adding a 3rd would just kill the entire hallway.

Any box store will have by pass door hardware made of plastic. Buy one and just cut off part of it. There made to steady two doors and you only need 1/2 the bracket.

A single roller will just stop it from hitting the wall, the bypass guide will stop it from swinging in both directions.
