    Cabinet pocket doors - which hardware?

    What brand and model number of pocket door hardware do you like for cabinets?
    The doors will be 18" wide x 20" tall.

    Anything pitfalls or bad practices I should look out for?

    thanks, Mark

    When large pocket doors in entertainment centers were all the rage, I used to use the Accuride ant-rack cable system. But it's been years since I've done any pocket doors. I would think that any system using a follower strip from a major company like Accuride, KV, or Hafele would work just fine.

    Thanks Rob. I'll check out some youtube videos and go from there.

    It's been a while, but I've used Accurides with follower strips successfully. Get the hardware and follow the specs religiously. Make sure your cuts are square. Most use a roller at the front which the door pivots around when closing, and the doors have to be pulled out fully to avoid levering them against the roller- make sure the users understand that. Allow for access for adjustment/replacement.
