Pocket Door Electric Lock - Just a few months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting in a bizarre angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was definitely lost. I got a flashlight and began looking in the pocket door frame. I had difficulty discovering the problem but when I did it was obvious.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam as the pocket door was slipping shut it works perfectly but when you went to open it. The issue turned out to be the path was missing a screw in the very rear and as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway. There was not any method to achieve the screw because it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing.
This is the only real thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple plus some paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door track. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have troubles falling and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or the doorway to swell preventing it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
