Converging Pocket Door Pulls - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a weird angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this sort of scenario and was undoubtedly confused. I got a torch and began looking inside the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was noticeable.
The issue turned out to be the path was missing a screw in the back so that as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door. There is not any method to reach the screw as it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing.
This was the only thing I would require an easy wall patch and really could think of and a few paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door path. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to mend the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems falling and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the thickness of the door or the door to swell preventing it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time.
