A-S Roller Number 6573

A handy person from NH says:
Hi there,

I've seen some great discussion on the board and hope someone could me out with some sliding door rollers. I have a contemporary house built in 1972 with Allen Stevens doors and windows, and the rollers on a 8 foot wide (4' doors) door failed many years ago. They are clearly marked with "A-S NYC" and PN 6573. Obviously the original manufacturers are long gone.

The roller itself is 1 1/8", which narrows it down to around 9 rollers on your site. Any ideas on a replacement? The graph paper is 1/4" grid - the roller assembly is a little over 3/4" wide and a total length of just under 3", vertical height is around 1".

Thanks in advance.

Check out our 81-262, this looks to be a good match.

Looks closer to 81-129.
81-262 has a very narrow wheel that will not fit over most glass door rails. It is more likely for a screen. Every post on this site about the 81-262 should recommend the 81-129. I see none that should use 81-262. I bought some a long time ago and I don't think I will ever use them.
