    I have a very small bathroom, so I installed a pocket door to save space. Now, I'm having trouble finding a sturdy pocket door lock. Most of them look pretty flimsy with just a latch.

    Previously, I was looking at rejuvenation.com for their door hardware, but they don't offer locking mechanisms for pocket doors. Know any good websites with quality door hardware that offer pocket door locks?

    Checkout www.johnsonhardware.com I got mine from them. QUality hardware for pocket doors, I liked it much better than the more commonly available Stanley stuff.

    Jad.....thanks for that info. I have always been very disappointed in the hardware available locally for pocket doors.

    This is a pocket door I made in my shop out of Alder. Can you see the hole to pop the lock?

    That is a thumb latch. You press the top and it pops out.
