SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Patio sliding screen door bug flap

A handy person from Sarasota, Florida says:
I have three 5 ft wide sliding patio screen doors which were installed around 1990. I found replacement roller hardware at Home Depot marked for "Pan Am". The bug sweeper vinyl is hard as a rock and needs to be replaced as well. I looked at the size of your four replacement options, but the inserts all seem too big. The insert for these screen doors measured about 1/4" x 1/4" molded with a slight offset to the flap. The overall flap with insert measures about 3/4"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The closest we have is the 59-057, if you get it to push in and stay, you can trim to fit. If you look closely at the product image for the 59-057 Bug Flap, you will notice tear strips on the flange. Use a utility knife on one end to start the cut so you can tear it off in order to reduce the flange.

Thank you. I just place an order per your recommendation.
