Hafele Sliding Pocket Door Hardware - Just a few months ago 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 kind of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I started looking in the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had trouble discovering the problem 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 shut it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it. The issue 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 back that was very. There was no strategy since it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to attain the screw.
In order to correct the pocket door issue, I was really going to have to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall in the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the sole thing I could think of and would require a straightforward wall patch plus some paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door path. Then I use some fast setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems falling and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time.
