Bi-fold closet doors

A home owner from USA says:
Hi,

I have metal bi-fold closet doors that use 5/16" diameter guide pins.
The caps are all worn and need to be replaced.
Attached to this e-mail is a drawing of the guide pin cap.

Will you please let me know if you have this cap in stock?
Thanks.

Hey, Marco, thanks for posting. Unfortunately, we do not have a cap by itself that can accommodate a 5/16" pin. You should consider our 21-005 bifold door pivot. Does this look like it could work?
A handy person says:
Hi, Tom. It looks like it will work. But I don't
need to change the pin, only the nylon cap. May I
purchase several of those caps (minus the pin) from
Swisco? Thanks!

Thank you for getting back to us. We do not have this cap by itself. You will have to replace the whole pin. I apologize for the inconvenience.
