Alside Sliding door Hardware Kit

A handy person from Bacliff Texas says:
I have a Alside not sure what model it is, but i believe it is a 5100 or 6100 series sliding door i just had installed. the problem was the previous Homeowner had lost all of the installation hardware.... like the rollers for the door, as well as all of the Handle/Latch assembly.. the installer called it the "Latch Cartridge" that fits inside the sliding door.

I am not real sure of the model #, but the 5100, and 6100 photos look the same.

the only #'s i could find on the boxes were:


S1000
Alside
tag: 7073WTE 137LH

need to buy rollers, and all latch/handle hardware....

To be honest, I'm not sure. Could I see a few pictures of the hardware in question? That will help us determine what you need.
A quick learner from Bacliff Texas says:
i dont have any of the Hardware, i can however take measurements and photos of the door and tracks if this would help. let me know what measurements it would take to get the hardware...

It will be hard to find an exact replacement without the old hardware, but that information may help, yes. Please send some photos of the inside, outside and a side view of where that lock fits into. If you also have the keeper on the jamb, send that, too.

cassette length is approx 11.25" long (See Photo) by 7/8" wide. see Photo

holes for latch handle/lock are 3 3/4" apart for mounting screws (small Holes), holes inside mounting holes are approx 1.5" apart center to center on both measurements. See Photos

i have done this three times now and I am not sure if the photos are making it through......

so the other issue is i have no wheels on the door bottom to slide on... the area inside the bottom of the door is 3/4 to 7/8" wide, 1 7/16" for the cutout, but goes 1" farther up inside the bottom of the door, I have 1 1/2" gap at the top of the door, wher the track is because there are no wheels on the door.

Thank you for these pictures. Can you also show me the keeper on the jamb? Thanks!
A professional from California says:
I have seen this door with roller #81-030.
No guarantee this is the same, but I'd start there.
Check dimensions.
A quick learner from Bacliff Texas says:
What do you mean by "Keeper"?

Paul from SWISCO responded:
It's the device attached to the door jamb channel that allows the door to lock. It should be something like a long strip of metal with gaps in it for the door lock to hold onto.
