I don't have the manual on how to release the 23-176S
hanger. How do you release the pocket door? Do you push the white tab all the way? Do I need to push the grey tab all the way too? I don't want to break the plastic tab. Please help. I need to remove my pocket door for floor tile installation. Thanks!

Is this easier said than done, because mine will not release.

You have to make sure that you catch the metal tab properly to release. It is pretty easy but a little tricky

I am having the same problem. Can't release that door from the hanger. I also feel like I am going to snap these tabs right off. Does the white tab get pushed into the brack so the larger piece disappears or does it get pushed out?

Thanks Paul Sr. for the diagram. I ran into sliding closet doors that were hung with the pocket door hangars. Though I saw the unlocking mechanisms, I wasn't aware of how to release the hangers. Ha! It seems that a good nudge with a flat screw driver on the metal tab does the trick. To reinstall the locking tab, I simply raised the door a little with a wedge under the bottom, lined up the roller carriage, then screwed the height adjustment nut down until it popped in place (locked). I next screwed the adjustment nut to raise and level the door.
