Mirrored Closet Doors

A quick learner from Seattle, WA says:
I currently have mirrored closet doors with concave wheels as shown in the picture. I am wondering if I can switch these out with 23-199 wheels and 23-243 track. The roller assembly should fit just fine as far as I know.

Thanks for posting! I'm not sure if you can use the 23-199 to replace the roller you have now, which looks like our 23-028. Is there any reason why you can't use a track that works with a concave roller, such as our 23-256, 23-257, or 23-258?

I don't really have a good reason for wanting to change to convex rollers, except for the cost.

Well, I think you should stick with the system you have. The 23-199 may not replace the 23-028 in your instance. While of similar size, their dimensions are just slightly off from one another, and it appears that your 23-028 rollers fit into a specific slot that is made for them. Ultimately, the choice is yours, but I recommend sticking with the system that you have.
