Gapco Screen Door Roller

A landlord from Edina, Minnesota says:
Hi there -

Wondering if you stock the attached screen door roller - I BELIEVE it is a Gapco screen door. I looked at the spec book for the building, 22 years old, and it listed Gapco sliding patio doors. Let me know if you could help - I would buy a quantity while I am at it.

Thank you sincerely,

Hi Paul, I am bringing in a similar looking roller but it is made to replace a sliding glass door roller.

Did your roller definitely come off of a sliding screen door?

I cannot tell from your picture, does your roller have a metal concave wheel?

Check to see if your wheel has a diameter of 1-1/8" and is 1/4" thick.

Hi Donna -

Thank you very much for your response - Yes, it came off of a sliding screen. Yes, it is a metal concave wheel. And finally, yes it is 1 1/8" diameter and 1/4" thick.

Thanks again for your help - I have looked around quite a bit!

I am glad those wheel measurements match up - I think I found your match. After its processed into our online catalog I will contact you again so you can take a look at it and purchase if it matches up.

Thanks for you using our discussion board!

Please take a look at the newly added SWISCO product 81-251, Roller Assembly.
A home owner from Hamilton, ON says:
Hi Donna,

I've been watching this post and was wondering if this replacement suggestion worked for Paul. We have exactly the same roller as Paul. The suggested replacement seems to have an angled tail portion. The roller assembly we are searching for has a straighter, slightly angled tail portion.

Do you think we will be able to "retrofit" your suggested replacement?

Thanks in advance
