Simpson Pocket Door Hardware - Just a couple of months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a weird angle. This was the first time I had ran into this type of scenario and was definitely confused. I got a flashlight and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the problem but when I did it was clear.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half, as the pocket door was sliding shut it works flawlessly but when you went to open it. There clearly was not any way to reach the screw because it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself.
To be able to correct the pocket door trouble, I was going to have to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the sole thing I really could think of and would require an easy wall patch plus some paint to help make the repair whole. Then I use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have troubles sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time may also cause the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
