Question Acordian style bedroom door won't stay attached.

The bedroom in the back of my class c has an acoridian like door for privacy. I've got a 16 and 13 year old so privacy is important
Anyway, there is a slot in the end of the sliding door which connects to a fixture on the wall. The problem is that the tension of the door wants to pull off the wall fixture and won't stay securely closed. See pictures below (for some reason they got rotated). The picture on the top shows the end of the door with the receptacle. On the bottom is the knob mounted to the wall which the door is supposed to attach to and stay secured. Perhaps the knob has gotten worn down over time and I need to replace? Any other ideas?

Also, look at the edge rail on the door to see if it is slightly bowed from being strapped in the open position for long periods. That was the problem we had. If that is not the problem, you can release some of the tension on the door by leaving it in the closed position when ever you can. I realize it won't latch and hold, but if you leave it as close to being closed you can get, it should release some tension after awhile.

Good Luck
