Repairing door pockets

Post by mopman93 » Fri Feb 12, 2016 3:41 pm

I have found that these can be repaired for about $5 at home depot.

Purchase a 1/2" copper pipe cap. Drill a hole in the end of it for the screw to pass through.

Trim the top of your presumably broken posts on the pockets flat for the cap to sit flush on.

Epoxy the pipe cap to the post with a 1 min or 5 min epoxy such as loctite or whatever is cheap. The cap is larger in id that the post and you will need excess epoxy to fill the void. Not pretty but functional.

Voila.
