Latch Hardware For Pocket Doors - Just a couple months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a weird angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this sort of scenario and was definitely lost. I began 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.
There clearly was not any solution because it had been at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing to reach the screw.
In order to fix the pocket door problem, I would have to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall in the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only real thing I could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door track. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to correct the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door issues are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have issues sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time may also make the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
