Hafele Heavy Duty Pocket Door Hardware - Just a few months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a peculiar angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was definitely confused. I got a torch and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had difficulty finding the issue but when I did it was obvious.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half, as the pocket door was sliding closed it works flawlessly but when you went to open it. The trouble turned out to be as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the doorway and the path was missing a screw in the very rear. There clearly was not any strategy since it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself to achieve the screw.
As a way to correct the pocket door trouble, I had been going to have to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall at the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only real thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door track. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to correct the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
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 closed, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time also can make the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly.
