SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Benchmark Bi-Fold Door

A handy person from Maryland says:
I think I found the right part but would appreciate confirmation. See photos attached as PDF. Should I replace the entire Door Pivot Pin (Product Code # 21-002) or just the Pin Cap (Product Code # 21-100) ... or am I completely wrong, in which case, would you please direct me to the right product to purchase. I hope to make a purchase and get this fixed as soon as I can get the right information. Thanks so much.

Good afternoon and thank you for posting!

If you can, you may be able to only replace the 21-100 caps. Just remove the pin with a hammer and then lightly hammer the new nylon cap to the pin.

Would it cause any problems to leave the pin in place, turn the louver doors on their side, and then hammer the new nylon cap to the pin? Thanks so much for your time.

I've never done it that way, but you can give it a try. It shouldn't hurt anything since the caps only need a lighter tap.
