Kwikset 335 Round Privacy Pocket Door Lock - Just a few months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing in a bizarre angle. It was the first time I had ran into this type of situation and was definitely lost. I began looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had trouble finding the problem but when I did it was clear.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam, as the pocket door was sliding shut it works perfectly but when you went to open it. There was not any strategy because it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself to attain the screw.
It was the only real thing I could think of and would require a simple wall patch and some paint to really make the repair whole. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have troubles sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time also can cause the door to swell preventing it from opening properly.
