Closet Rollers

A quick learner from Nevada says:
My mirror doors have the EXACT same makeup as Swisco's 81-252. EXCEPT: my rollers are only 1-1/4" in diameter.
Do you have this roller?

Dave from SWISCO responded:
I'm afraid the 81-252 only comes with a 1-1/2" diameter wheel. Are you sure it is identical? There may be some subtle difference in size or design that isn't apparent at first glance. A lot of these parts may seem the same, but tiny details like that render them incompatible. If you still aren't sure, send us some photos of your roller to help us identify the part you need. Please also provide your measurements.

Please add this to the post on this page (http://www.swisco.com/discussions/Closet-Rollers-77-64822) along w/ this message:

Thank you for the very quick response, my closet door looks exactly like the post in (http://www.swisco.com/discussions/Door-tracks-needed-77-47265), and (http://www.swisco.com/discussions/Closet-door-roller-77-46782).
The measurements are the same except the wheel. Would it still work even with a slightly bigger wheel?

I have attached photos also, for some reason it won't let me post after two unsuccessful tries.

Thank you!!

P.S. This is my 4th attempt...I spoke with someone today who said that I used several email addressees and you guys didn't receive my messages. I posted again today and my reference number is D64822.

The rollers shown in the two discussions you linked are different from one another. It makes me hesitate to say the 81-252 will work, because I have no way of knowing if yours is different, as well. However, if every measurement we show for the 81-252 is identical to your own measurements except the wheel, then it still may work. You can adjust these rollers up and down, so you may be able to make up for that difference.

Thank you Tom!!!
A professional from California says:
If it's too tight, you can straighten the small bend at the top to give yourself more height than you can possibly use.
Even if it had a 2-1/2" wheel, the wheel would still adjust about 1/8" above the bottom of the housing. See my attachment.
