Baldwin Pocket Door Edge Pull - Just a couple of months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a weird angle. This is the first time I had ran into this type of situation and was definitely lost. I got a flashlight and began looking in the pocket door frame. I had difficulty finding the problem but when I did it was evident.
The issue turned out to function as the path was missing a screw in the rear and as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway. There clearly was not any strategy to reach the screw because it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself.
As a way to fix the pocket door issue, I would have to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall in the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of and some paint to make the repair complete. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to fix the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually 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.
