The Ultimate Guide to Pocket Door Hardware

Pocket door hardware is a specialized type of hardware designed for pocket doors. When fully opened, these doors slide into a compartment in the adjacent wall, offering a unique space-saving solution for homes and businesses.

Choosing the right pocket door hardware is crucial for the functionality and longevity of your pocket door. The hardware ensures that the door slides smoothly and securely, providing a seamless operation that enhances the overall user experience.

Types of Pocket Door Hardware

The hardware for these doors includes various components such as door slides, locks, pulls, installation kits, and more.

1. Locks & Latches

Apocket door lock andlatch keep the pocket door securely closed. The difference is that locks require a key to open the door, while latches do not.


Both options are available in various lengths, widths, plate thicknesses, designs, and finishes to accommodate different pocket door styles, dimensions, and personal preferences.

2. Pocket Door Pull

Instead of the door handles you would find on standard doors, apocket door pull slides the door open and closed.

A flush pull at the door's edge is often the most convenient option for pocket doors because it is perfectly level with the surface of the pocket door, allowing the doors to pass over each other.

3. Pocket Door Slides

Pocket door slides are essential to pocket door hardware as they ensure a properly functioning pocket door.

The hardware is often designed to be minimal and unobtrusive, adding to the clean lines and streamlined door appearance.

Hinge Outlet’s pocket door hardware kits come with detailed instructions, making it possible for DIY enthusiasts to tackle the project.

4. Variety of Designs and Finishes

Pocket door hardware comes in a wide range of designs and finishes, allowing you to match the hardware to your door and overall room decor. 

Whether you prefer a modern chrome finish or a more traditional bronze look, there's a pocket door hardware option to suit your style.

How to Choose the Right Pocket Door Hardware

1. Factors to Consider

When choosing pocket door hardware, consider the size and weight of your door, the finish that matches your room's decor, and the type of hardware that suits your door's functionality.

2. Measuring the Door and the Space

Before purchasing pocket door hardware, measure the thickness of your door and the space between the door's face and the trim molding around the wall's opening compartment. This will ensure you choose hardware that fits perfectly.
