Floor Mount Door Guides for Pocket Doors

A home owner from Canada says:
We are having pocket doors installed in our house. The floor mount door guide posts are installed proud of the door frame they are made of nylon and my concern is if they are knocked with a vacuum cleaner etc. they could break. Are these installed correctly should they sticick out like that. Please forward me a photo showing what they should look like.
Much appreciated,

Hi Donna. I do not have a photo of the 23-210 door guides installed. Can you attach a photo of how they are installed in your home? I may be able to tell you if they are installed correctly from a photo.
A home owner from Canada says:
Thank you for your quick response I have attached four photos of how the floor mount guides have been installed. These pocket doors are installed in the entrance to our Living Room and Library. The way they stick out I'm afraid that they will have a tendency to break when knocked.
Please let me know if these have been installed correctly.

Hi Donna, you are correct that does not look good; this type of guide is meant to mount to the floor.

Take a look at product code 23-208 pocket door guide to see if this could be installed, check the door thickness and measure the jamb where it would mount to make sure you have room.
