SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

23-506 folding door hardware kit

A home owner from Katy, TX says:
I have afour panel bifold door with a bad upper pivot(the one with the nylon wheel). The pivots are spring loaded. I cannot find the same hardware. your 23-506 hardware kit appears to be a possible replacement. I need to know the following information in order to evaluate it.

1. the length of the door track
2. the size of the hole to be drilled in the door to mount the pivots.
3. are all three pivots press fits?
4. do you carry all the individual parts as repair parts?

Thanks for posting! I'll answer your questions in order.

1) The length of the 23-506 door track is 59-1/2" inches and is designed to fit in a 5' opening.
2) The size of the hole needed for the pivots should be 7/16".
3) Yes, the pivots are indeed press fit.
4) Yes, we do carry these parts individually. You can see them in the Related Item(s) section of the the 23-506's product page.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
