In every construction project, there is an overlap in trades working together. Pocket door openings have often been subject to issues as a result of this. The key problem is generally the compression of the throat of the pocket by drywall crews. The Jamb Spreader has been designed to minimize any risk here. 

In addition, the Aluminum Split Jambs of the Cavity Slider are slightly bowed out in our facility to widen the throat at the middle height of the opening. This creates slightly more clearance where handle hardware is fitted.

The Jamb Spreader ensures that the CS Cavity Slider Pocket Frame's split jambs are not compressed after installation. Once installed, the split jambs of the Cavity Slider Pocket Frame should be rounded out to accommodate any slight bowing of the door and allow door hardware to clear the jambs. Using the Jamb Spreader ensures the round out is maintained when fixing drywall or any other construction components during the build.
