John...molding is the wooden trim around a door way .... I thought all those door jam, no screws, took molding....maybe I'll go ask big 5/sports authority if that'ss true or not
If you do plan on going that route make sure that you are drilling into studs or something solid. I was fortunate to have concrete.

As far as the door jams go; I used to have one; actually still do, I just don't use it anymore. I do believe that molding is required, because that's where the leverage comes from. Not a physics expert, but it sounds right.

Have you also considered a stand alone system? Something like this: WFS
