Pocket Door Spring Stop - Just a couple months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a peculiar angle. It was the very first time I had ran into this type of scenario and was undoubtedly lost. I began looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had a hard time discovering the problem but when I did it was evident.
There is no method to reach the screw since it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself.
It was the only thing I would require a straightforward wall patch and could think of and some paint to help make the repair complete. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door track. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time may also make the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly.
