Allen Stevens 6049 door rollers

A handy person from Xenia, OH says:
Hopefully this will save some of your customers a little time. I spent a good deal of time today trying to find a suitable replacement for two broken Allen Stevens 6049 patio door rollers. Since Allen Stevens is out of business it was not as easy as I had hoped.

Your patio door replacement roller #81-005 is a dead on replacement, although there is a slight difference in the look. Please post this on your site so that others can find the replacement quickly and with assurance that it works fine. Thank You.

Thanks for taking the time to post this information. Other users will definitely like to hear that you have had success replacing your old Allen Stevens 6049 roller with the 81-005 replacement roller.

We have had a couple users in the past ask about the Allen Steven's patio door rollers 6049 and 6047. I am not sure if there is actually a 6047, I believe these users may have mistakened their stamped number of 6049 to be 6047. See this discussion regarding these two Allen Steven Corp part numbers.

Thanks again!

Im lucky to find this site. The 81-005 is a replacement for the complete Harris roller assembly. I think the confusion is the 6049 is the housing and the 6047 is the roller (riverted) assembly. The 81-005 contains both. Thats all thats needed for replacement.
