You can't mount the hardware directly on drywall.
If the drywall crushes and it
will, then the hanger will tilt and the roller will hit the hanger.
If you install two wood screws into the drywall
so that the heads are flush with the drywall, then the weight
of the doors and stainless steel will not crush the drywall.
1. Mark the Hanger Location.
2. Add hidden support screws
3. Drill Pilot Holes
4. Mount the Hanger
Possibly a better alternative would be to cut
a section of closet pole or plywood and using a hole saw slightly
smaller than the hanger base, cut out the drywall with the same
hole saw with pilot bit removed and replace that piece of drywall
with the section of closet pole or plywood which you just cut
to the thickness of the drywall.
The Rollers with safety pin require drilled
track which we have done by the factory and there is no chance
that the holes will line up with the studs. So you need to have
blocking behind the drywall, between the studs, and you need to
replace the drywall or support the hanger with screws. A hardwood
ledger is nice in case you need to control the gap between door
and wall to miss the baseboard for instance.
