Kwikset Pocket Door Hardware - Just a few months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a strange angle. This is the first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I began looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty finding the problem but when I did it was obvious.
As the pocket door was slipping closed it would work perfectly but when you went to open it the base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. The difficulty turned out to be as the door slid back into 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 very rear. There clearly was no approach to attain the screw because it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.
This is the only real thing I really could think of and would require a straightforward wall patch and a few paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door path. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have issues falling and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the depth 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 periods of time.
