Pocket Door Locks Baldwin - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a weird angle. It was the first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I started looking within the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had a hard time finding the issue but when I did it was obvious.
There was no approach as it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself, to reach the screw.
To be able to fix the pocket door trouble, I was really going to need to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the only real thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of plus some paint to really 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 track. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have troubles sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time also can make the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
