Alside/Alpine 6' sliding glass door tandem roller replacement

A quick learner from Soldotna,ak says:
We have an older 1996 or so Alside/Alpine 6' sliding glass door that I need to replace the rollers on. Do you have a suggestion? I know that it is metal and has two rollers on each part and two screws in the end piece. Thanks.

I'm afraid I cannot identify your rollers without more information. Specifically, we will need pictures of your rollers removed from the door. We will also need your measurements of the housing and wheel.

In the meantime, start by looking at our 81-155 and see if this could be what you need. Alside doors have been known to use this part, though there's no guarantee it's what you have.

We have our door out and will wait for a reply as to what roller we need. We have the Series 800-3100 ansi/aama 191-93 SGD-R25 The roller is 1 1/4" and the length of the unit end to end of roller is 4 1/4", the deepth is 1 1/8" and it is 5/8 " wide. Thanks! Carol

Hey, thanks for the new images. I think our 81-087 is a closer match. This seems to have the same style of housing, however the wheels are larger at 1-1/2". If you were to adjust the roller, do you think you could still get it to work in your door?
