Pocket door locks are a type of door lock that is installed on pocket doors. These types of doors are designed to slide into a pocket in the wall, instead of swinging open like traditional doors. At Door Locks Direct, we bring you two options: passage and privacy pocket door locks. Passage locks function as a pull by simply allowing the door to slide in or out of the lock pocket. They're ideal for pantries, closets, and laundry rooms. Privacy pocket door locks have a thumbturn on the inside of the door that allows you to lock and unlock the door.
