SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Looking for replacement

A quick learner from Central Florida says:
Good afternoon:

Do you carry a replacement for this part? It is for a sliding glass patio door; possibly Alcan, but I am not sure as there are no markings. This part goes on the top corner of the door, on the side opposite of the door's handle. It seems to function as both a guide and as a piece to hold the wool pile in place. On the other side of the door, the side with the handle, I have what appears to be your part 80-045; however mine is also black.

This part is 1 and 1/2 inches wide, it is I and 1/8 inches tall, and the side arms extend out 15/16ths of an inch.

Attached I have three pictures, one of the actual broken part installed on the door, and two of another door's matching part removed.

Thank you and please help!

Thank you for contacting us. I actually think the 80-045 could possibly work as a replacement. I can't be sure, but I suspect the original installers could have used two different guides to serve the same purpose. Perhaps they ran out of one type. Either way, if you want to test it out, remove the 80-045 you currently have on your door and install it in the spot where the black guide is. If it works, then our part may be worth considering as a replacement.
