Flush Pull Set For Pocket Door - Just a couple months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a weird angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was undoubtedly confused. I got a torch and started looking inside the pocket door frame. I had difficulty finding the issue but when I did it was apparent.
As the pocket door was skidding closed 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 strategy since it had been at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to attain the screw.
To be able to correct the pocket door problem, I had been going to have to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only thing I could think of and would require an easy wall patch and some paint to make the repair complete. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time may also cause the doorway to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
