Removing the pocket door from Hanger

A home owner from Los Angeles says:
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!

To remove the pocket door activate both tabs in the direction of the orange arrow with a straight edge screw driver as shown.

A handy person from Michigan says:
Is this easier said than done, because mine will not release.
A home owner from Wisconsin says:
You have to make sure that you catch the metal tab properly to release. It is pretty easy but a little tricky
A quick learner from Massachusetts says:
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?

It's necessary to apply pressure to get this roller out, but be careful! There is a chance that you can break it if you aren't careful. That said, this is the only way to remove it. It should just pop out when the locking tab is pushed to the side, you will need to apply a little elbow grease if it comes down to it. If you aren't comfortable with the project, it may not be a bad idea to have someone familiar with this procedure help you.
