Hafele Soft Close Pocket Door Hardware - Just a couple months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a strange angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was definitely confused. I began looking within the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had trouble finding the problem but when I did it was noticeable.
There clearly was not any way since it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to reach the screw.
As a way to repair the pocket door problem, I had been going to have to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall at the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only thing I would require a simple wall patch and really could think of and a few paint to make the repair whole. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door path. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the thickness of the door or the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
