Locks For Pocket Doors With Keys - Just a couple months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a strange angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I got a torch and started looking inside the pocket door frame. I had trouble finding the problem but when I did it was clear.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam, as the pocket door was slipping closed it works flawlessly but when you went to open it. There is not any solution to achieve the screw because it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.
In order to correct the pocket door issue, I had been going to need to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the sole thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to help make the repair complete. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to fix the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
