Pocket Sliding Glass Door Locks - Just a couple months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a weird angle. This is the very first time I had ran into this sort of scenario and was definitely lost. I got a torch and started looking inside the pocket door frame. I had difficulty discovering the problem but when I did it was noticeable.
The problem turned out to be as the door slid back to 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. There is not any strategy to reach the screw since it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.
This is the sole thing I could think of and would require an easy wall patch and some paint to help make the repair complete. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to fix the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems falling and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness 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.
