This hardware is very sturdy and very well built. Just be careful. You need at least a 12" clearance about your for to install this
Thank you for the praise Marc, we are happy to hear that you like the hardware and it's build quality! Yes, customers need to be wary of the clearance needed for the Spoke wheel bypass and we also indicate this on the product description.
Spoke Wheel Bypass Barn Door Hardware Kit
Thank you for the review!
I like the look once complete, but had to take it apart several times to fix the issues.
When picking this spoke wheel I knew we had to hang the brackets like the instructional video. The 8' ceilings won't allow the brackets to be installed like the picture. So you must install the brackets in the upside down U shape like video.
Here are the issues:
Once installed, the first rail stand offs are not long enough to keep the spoke wheel from hitting the upper U bracket lag screws. Had to solve this by mounting washers to the stand off's behind the rail.
The screws for the upper bracket for the front rail are much smaller and leave a lot of play in the bracket since the holes are the same size as the the rails. Either needs bigger screws or smaller holes to make fitment smoother.
The spoke wheel hangers, the bolts are about 1/4" to long for a 1 3/8" solid door. Had to add thick washers to the back side. Lucky it is for a closet so that side will never be seen.
Hello Mark, thank you for the feedback. We have improved on the Spoke Wheel bypass over the past few months after your feedback was posted and it has gone through different modifications to work with no problems or issues. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you during the time and we would love to help you out if any problem arises.
Well made, good looking and sturdy. Needs more washers for hangars in case door is thinner than expected.
Thanks for your feedback Dianne. We'll definitely take it into consideration. Please us know if you need anything (like washers) as we can certainly ship some out to you. Thanks for your review!
Thank you for the review Brian!
