Security Locks For Pocket Doors - Just a couple of months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting in a peculiar angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I got a flashlight and began looking in the pocket door frame. I had difficulty finding the problem but when I did it was noticeable.
The issue turned out to be the course was missing a screw in the very rear so that as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door. There is not any method as it was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself, to attain the screw.
As a way to correct the pocket door issue, I was going to need to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall in the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of and some paint to help make the repair whole. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties falling and eventually are left closed, 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 preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
