How to lock a pocket door

Cynthia HKMS Woodworks


I folks, I got a good challenge for ya! Maybe/hopefully some of you have had this come up and know the answer/s. My son just moved into a new house for college next year, he'll be a junior. His room has a pocket door. We are trying to figure out how to put a lock on this door in order to keep his stuff safe and secure. I'm thinking this room had maybe been a dinning room and that's why it has a pocket door rather than a regular door. Your help will be greatly appreciated! I haven't seen the house yet, only pictures. We will be going to deal with the door some time this summer. Thanks in advance for any help. Sorry I don't have many details. He's not sure if the door is hollow core or solid. My guess would be that it is hollow core:(
