Schlage Pocket Door Handles - Just a couple of months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a bizarre angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely lost. I got a torch and started looking within the pocket door frame. I had trouble discovering the problem but when I did it was noticeable.

The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam as the pocket door was skidding closed it works perfectly but when you went to open it. There is no way since it was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to reach the screw.

As a way to repair the pocket door issue, I would need to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the top right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only real thing I could think of and would require a straightforward wall patch plus some paint to make the repair whole. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.


Some pocket door problems are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the thickness of the door or the doorway to swell preventing it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
