Difference Between Low Profile & Classic Strap Hangers

Difference Between Low Profile & Classic Strap Hangers
One of the most common questions we receive is "what is the difference between the Low Profile and Classic Strap hardware kits?"; and with good reason! At a glance, both hanger designs look very similar and customers want to make sure they are ordering the correct hardware kit for their installation. The first thing to remember is that (with the exception of the Spoke Wheel hardware kits) all of our Dusty's barn door hardware kits are the same. They use the same components such as the tracks, door stoppers and wall spacers, and they all have the same weight capacity. The only difference between them is the hanger design. The difference between the Country Style hanger and the Classic Strap hanger is obvious, but that's not the case with the Low Profile and Classic Strap hanger. Let's take a closer look at the differences:
