Pocket doors are an interesting idea, where there are no doors which are
forever seen in rooms, covering up wall areas. But I think I have
found an advance even for pocket doors.|
I found a way where a slight touch on such a pocket door can immediately cause the door to rapidly slide open or shut, and where it then securely stays in that new position.
Some pocket doors seem to not want to stay open or closed, and are instead PARTLY sticking out of the wall, which is unattractive.
I added some extra items which are also inside the wall. Essentially, I install a horizontal pivot with around a six inch long arm circling it, where that arm has a one-pound-weight at its outer end. This is located inside the wall farther back past where the opened door ever gets to. A connecting rod arm attaches to the innermost edge of the pocket door itself, and to the rotating weighted arm.
It then passes slightly past being vertical, but now in the opposite direction, where there is now a slight force which keeps the door fully open.
