SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Can the 81-241 work for the 81-156?

A handy person from USA says:
Will the 81-241 fit in the 81-156.
Or is there a Stainless steel roller for an American Craftsman 5800 door.

I've never personally used our 81-241 with our 81-156, so I can't say for sure. However, the wheels do shame the same dimensions, so it's possible. That said, I believe American Craftsman uses our 81-095. You might want to look at that, as well. Would that be a closer match? If so, I can try to research a possible stainless steel option.
A professional from California says:
I've swapped rollers in that housing many times.
Usually 1-1/2 wheels.
There is no reason the stainless wouldn't work.
Just be careful not to beat up the housing too much in the process. I do one wheel at a time so the remaining wheel helps hold things in place.
