Patio door rollers

A home owner from USA says:
I an shopping for new rollers for my patio door. I have my rollers out, and the one I have is very close to your 81-255.The basic design is exactly the same except mine has a 5/16" 1-1/4" roller, and the tab on mine has a bolt hole where the 81-255 has a slotted tab All the assembly measurements are the same, including width, height, and width with dimples ( 3/4"). I saw the same roller on another site with a 1-1/4" roller so I know it is out there. Their stock # Is sku D1756. My question is can you get it, and will the difference in the tab matter?

Paul from SWISCO responded:
Based on what you described, I think you may want something like our 81-243. What do you think? As for the U-shaped screw way, I don't think that will pose a problem. When you tighten the frame screw, that should hold the roller in place.
A quick learner from Tennessee says:
Thanks for the answer,Paul.

Yes, that's it, the 81-243 looks as close as I might be able to get. I don't know how I missed that.
