Hello All: Made a big mistake. Supplied my carpenter with two regular hollow slab doors, which he promptly installed as pocket doors and painted. Purchased pocket door hardware (handle and lock sets), one set for privacy and 1 set for passage. I was then told they would not install as the doors I provided have 2 3/4" back sets and 99.9% of pocket door hardware is for 2 3/8" back sets, which is the hardware I provided. Have found one source for 2 3/4" back sets but very expensive through Accurate Lock and Hardware for $205 + taxes + shipping re:
Is there a way, short of replacing the doors, to work around this?
