SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Closet Door Hangers

A home owner from Rumford, RI says:
I purchased two sets of Closet Door Hangers with 3/4"roller wheels(Swisco item# 23-047)well over a year ago to replace some missing hardware for my bypass closet doors. Unfortunately,the existing track on the closet only accommodates a 5/8" roller wheel. Therefore, I need a closet hanger with a 5/8" roller which I don't think are available any longer or a replacement track that will accommodate a 3/4" roller. My closet doors are 1 3/8" and the closet opening is 55 1/2". Can you help me with this long delayed project?

Yes, you might need to just replace the complete set. Take a look at our 23-501 5' track. You might need to cut the length of the track to fit, but what do you think?
A professional from CA says:
Before going the new track route, I would consider drilling out the back of the rivet holding the wheel to the bracket and screwing a 10-142 to it.
I think the problem could be either the space between the nut on the wheel and the track or the thickness of the nut. I'm not saying it will work, because I don't know your situation, but look at it and see if it could work. I've had luck with similar repairs.
