Von Morris Pocket Door Locks - Just a couple of months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a bizarre angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was definitely confused. I got a flashlight and began looking inside the pocket door frame. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was evident.
There was not any way as it was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself, to achieve the screw.
To be able to fix the pocket door issue, I had been going to have to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the top right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the sole thing I could think of and would require an easy wall patch and some paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door track. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time may also make the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
