Can I use closet door roller 23-043 if my original wheel is only 1 1/8"in diameter?

A handy person from Omaha, NE says:
Well shoot, I was so happy to find something even remotely close to the rollers I needed for these old mirror doors in this house we are renting ( it was slightly longer but one of your responses in the forums indicated this shouldnt matter, which I dont think it will. Someone took a picture and everything looked to match. I went with the 23-043 and it looks EXACTLY the same...except I guess I barely mis-measured the diameter of the wheel. I believe it is 1 1/8th now that I have received the 1 1/4" diameter :( My question..do they even make a 1 1/8th as I can't find it on your sight. OR, is it not really going to matter. Thank you so much!!

You still may be able to use the 23-043 mirror roller. It has an adjustment screw on the back that raises and lowers the wheel which should make up for the 1/8" difference. Try that out and let me know if it works.
A professional from California says:
If you truly need that last 1/16" adjustment, or even a little bit more, you could take tin snips and shave off the metal corner above the wheel. This should allow the roller to tilt up higher.
