Pocket Door Privacy Lock Set - Just a couple of months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a strange angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was definitely lost. I started looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had trouble discovering the problem but when I did it was apparent.
As the pocket door was skidding shut 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 is no way as it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself to attain the screw.
As a way to fix the pocket door issue, I was going to need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only real thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple plus some paint to help make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door path. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to correct the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the thickness of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time.
