Stanley National Hardware Oil Rubbed Bronze Pocket Door Latch - Just a couple of months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a strange angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this sort of scenario and was undoubtedly lost. I started looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had a hard time finding the issue but when I did it was obvious.
The trouble turned out to function as the track 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 was not any approach because it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to achieve the screw.
This is the sole thing I would require an easy wall patch and could think of plus some paint to help make the repair complete. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
