Baldwin Pocket Door Privacy Lock - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a bizarre angle. It was the very first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was definitely confused. I got a flashlight and began looking inside the pocket door frame. I had a hard time finding the issue but when I did it was clear.
As the pocket door was slipping shut it works flawlessly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. There clearly was not any approach as it was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself to attain the screw.
It was the only real thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of and a few paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door track. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to mend 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 utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
