Modern Pocket Door Lock Hardware - Just a couple of months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a weird angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this type of scenario and was definitely confused. I got a torch and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had difficulty finding the problem but when I did it was evident.
There is no method as it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself, to reach the screw.
This is the only real thing I really could think of and would require a straightforward wall patch and a few paint to really make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door path. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to correct the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed 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 thickness of the door or the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
