Sliding Patio Screen Door Roller Assembly

A handy person from Concord, C says:
I am looking for a replacement for the roller assembly for my screen door. This closely resembles 84-091, except there is a hook instead of a hole on the part that actually latches to the inside of the door, similar to 84-140.

The 84-140 roller is a different version than the more common type like our 84-091. I believe you should go with the 84-140, personally. I'm not 100% sure, but I suspect that the hook on the housing is there for a reason. It could make it easier to replace the roller in the door. I personally have not replaced a door with the hook housing. As for the different kind of spring, it shouldn't matter what kind it is. It's only there to add tension, you see, so it works on the same idea. Take a look at the video below, as well, this may clarify some things.
