Keyed Pocket Door Mortise Lockset - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a peculiar angle. It was the very first time I'd ran into this type of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I got a flashlight and began looking inside the pocket door frame. I had trouble discovering the problem but when I did it was apparent.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half as the pocket door was skidding shut it would work perfectly but when you went to open it. There is no approach since it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to attain the screw.
It was the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of plus some paint to make the repair complete. Then I 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 problems are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems falling and eventually are left shut, 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 periods of time may also make the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
